 France is sensitive to the distressful situation the Armenians of Kessab have occurred in, says French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius in response to French Senator Philippe Kaltenbach's request. The French minister said France follows the situation and will be thoughtful for the Armenians of Kessab, according to Nouvelles d'Armenie. 

The situation in the region is alarming. France is sensitive to the distressful situations of the people that had to flee their town under shelling. France condemns violations of the International Humanitarian Law and the human rights in Syria and urges the conflicting parties, and the regime, first of all, to protect their citizens, Minister Fabius says. 

He urged everyone to differentiate the moderate opposition, which is supported by France and the terrorist groups that are condemned by France. France has come out for including the Islamic front into the list of the UN sanctions against Al-Qaeda in May 2013, Laurent Fabious says. According to him, France continues to mobilize in support of the Syrian people and the Armenians, specifically. Although there is lack of reliable information, he says, France keeps following the developments in Kessab with utmost attention and will be thoughtful for the fate of Armenians of Syria.

Earlier, French Senator Philippe Kaltenbach appealed to the Foreign Minister Fabious requesting support of the world community to the population of Kessab, Syria, to save them from repressions by the Islamist group Jabhat al-Nusra. 

To recall, Islamist group Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic Front attacked the Armenian-populated Kessab from the territory of Turkey and nearly entirely occupied the town with the support of Turkey. The groups are replenished mainly by Turks. Meanwhile, on 25 March, the Syrian army partially liberated the town from the radicals. President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan and Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia Aram 

I urged the Syrian authorities and the world community to save Kessab and give an adequate assessment of what is happening in Syria.
