Paris, 18 November 2015
We were horrified to learn of the execution of a Chinese hostage and a Norwegian hostage by the terrorist group Daesh [ISIL].
France extends its heartfelt condolences to the Chinese and Norwegian governments and people, as well as to the victims’ families.
France is fully committed to the fight against terrorism and barbarity; it will continue working to ensure the essential strengthening of international cooperation in the fight against Daesh./.
