Secretary Kerry Delivers Remarks With French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius

SECRETARY KERRY: (In French - Via interpreter) Thank you very much, Minister. Thank you for your warm hospitality. Thank you very much for welcoming us here today. It’s a great pleasure for me to be here with Foreign Minister Fabius. We just finished one of those wonderful French lunches that have been drawing Americans to Paris for centuries. Of course, it’s a privilege to share any meal with Laurent. He is a trusted friend, a steadfast ally, and a valued partner. And I would like to thank him for all of these. France, as you know, is the oldest ally of the United States, so we would like to thank you also for that. And now I will speak in English, because otherwise I would not be allowed to return back home. (Laughter.)

(In English.) I think it’s worth saying in both languages that France is America’s oldest ally, our first friend, and France helped to shape America and helped it to be the America it is today. As our first diplomatic partner, France taught us what happens in one nation can affect what happens in every other nation. For more than 200 years, we have stood together in battle, from the siege of Yorktown to the liberation of Paris, to today, and we’ve also stood together for peace, most importantly. We continue to advance the cause of human liberty and to champion universal values that really built our sister republics. Standing here in Paris today, I think of someone else who lived in Boston and Europe as a young man, Benjamin Franklin, and his patriotic compatriot Thomas Jefferson, the first Secretary of State. Those two geniuses, literally, would walk the streets of Paris discussing Voltaire and Rousseau and debating in this city’s famous salons, and formulating ideas that lit up the world. MORE

Libya’s Tripoli and Tobruk dilemma no nearer to resolution | Nathalie Guibert, Yves-Michel Riols and Hélène Sallon

In Libya, “there are two governments, two parliaments and complete confusion”, the French foreign minister, Laurent Fabius, said earlier this month. On this point, all parties agree. What they can’t agree on is finding the best way forward.

Citing respect for Libya’s national sovereignty, elected representatives, who have taken up residence in the eastern port city of Tobruk, reject the idea of outside intervention, something they had earlier supported. “Some believe that such support would pose even greater problems, particularly with regard to Libyan public opinion, concerned about the risk of another large-scale conflict,” says Issandr el-Amrani, who heads the International Crisis Group’s North African project. The group is an independent, non-governmental organisation committed to preventing and resolving conflict.

At an emergency meeting of the Arab League in Cairo at the start of this year, elected officials urged the international community to arm the Libyan military, confident that this would be sufficient to regain the upper hand in the field.
