Macron: Eliminating Terrorist Threat Now Top Priority
Local Editor

France shifted its priorities from ousting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to defeating terrorism and seeking political stability at home, French President Emmanuel Macron said at a joint press conference with US President Donald Trump.

Macron: Eliminating Terrorist Threat Now Top Priority

"On the Iraq-Syria situation, we have agreed to continue working together, in particular on the building of a roadmap for the post-war period," Macron said during a joint news conference in the aftermath of talks with Donald Trump in Paris.

"We have asked our diplomats to work in that direction, so in the next few weeks a concrete initiative can be taken and managed by the P5 [the five permanent members of United Nations Security Council (UNSC)]."

The so-called "contact group" on Syria, according to Macron, should include UN Security Council members, as well as representatives of the Syrian government and militant groups.

President al-Assad's departure is no longer as relevant for Paris, as fighting terrorism at home has now become the top priority, Macron stated.

"Indeed, we now have a new approach in Syria, because we want results and we want to work closely together with all our partners including the United States. We have one main goal which is to eradicate terrorism, no matter who they are, we want to build an inclusive and sustainable political solution," Macron said.

"I do not require Assad's departure, that's no longer a prerequisite for France. For seven years, we did not have an embassy in Damascus - and still we have no solution."
