Calls from some Islamic states for a boycott of French products are pointless and must be stopped. This is stated in the message of the French Foreign Ministry, posted on the department’s website.
The ministry noted that in several states of the Middle East in recent days there have been calls for a boycott of French products, including agri-food.
“Calls for a boycott are pointless and must be stopped immediately, as are all attacks carried out by a radical minority against our country,” the French diplomatic officials said.
The Foreign Ministry added that these calls distort the position of France, which supports freedom of conscience, freedom of expression, freedom of religion and the rejection of any calls to hatred.
