Ambassador voices thanks for support shown after attacks

On behalf of the French government and everyone at the French Embassy, I wish to convey my sincerest thanks to all those who have expressed sympathy and solidarity with France in the days following the tragic events of 13 November.

I thank everyone who has called, written or left flowers or candles outside the Embassy in London, and everyone who observed the minute’s silence around the UK on Monday morning.

I have been greatly moved by your countless displays of support. Every one of them is a gesture of friendship which strengthens us in the face of attempts to weaken and divide us.

Once again, the British people have shown we can count on them in times of crisis.

Thank you.

HE Sylvie Bermann, French Ambassador to the UK
