France: Envoy says Skripal case should not ‘set us against each other’

French Governmental Envoy for Relations with Russia Jean-Pierre Chevenement said the Skripal case ‘should not immediately set us against each other,» during an interview from Paris on Friday. Chevenement said that there are elements that are evident, according to the opinion of the French authorities. «We should clarify this matter, I hope that there will be an exchange of information through... Еще existing diplomatic and judicial channels,» he added. «Macron redefined the French policy, in particular on the Syrian question. He said that an inclusive approach is necessary for a political settlement of the situation. An inclusive approach includes participation in the dialogue of all parties, including representatives of the government of Damascus. This position marked a break with the previous policy, which plunged us into a deplorable state,» he said regarding Syria. Talking about sanctions against Russia, Chevenement citing Macron told that «it’s lifting depends on the implementation of the Minsk Agreement, on the resolution of this so-called «frozen» conflict, but it doesn’t reflect the reality, because about ten people die there every month». «It is quite obvious that this all contradicts the interests of Europe, Russia and, of course, Ukraine, which in general should be the bridge between Europe and Russia, not a hotbed of tension,» he went on to say.
