Correction for the record

(Islamabad, 30 November 2011)


Some Urdu newspapers misquoted the statement of the spokesperson of the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs regarding the border incident involving NATO. The statement was issued by a press release from the French Embassy in Islamabad on 29th November 2011.


These newspapers have mistakenly published on November 30th that France wanted “action against those who are responsible for these attacks”. There was no such statement in the press release.


The spokesperson said: “As the NATO Secretary General already stated, an inquiry by the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) has been ordered to establish the facts, determine who was responsible, and to learn the right lessons. We lend our full support to the swift completion of this inquiry. “

The text of the press release is as following:
