On Wednesday, France announced that it was “officially” ready to place its permanent seat on the UN Security Council under the auspices of the British newspaper “The Telegraph”.
“We officially deny it. The seat is ours.
“We are cooperating with the European Union with full sovereignty, as long as necessary,” Elysee explained in her response.
France is one of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, along with China, the United States, Russia and Britain.
Following the decision of these three capitals to end a strategic partnership in the Indo-Pacific region, the Telegraph newspaper published its article at the height of the diplomatic crisis between Paris on the one hand and Washington, Canberra and London on the other. France lost a major submarine contract with the Australians.
The publication of the article provoked reactions from many French political officials.
“Macron urgently needs to issue a denial. France will never give up its place on the UN Security Council. Whoever risks this is committing more treason,” the far-left candidate Jean-Luc Mன்சlenchon tweeted.
Far-right candidate Marine Le Pen commented on Twitter, “If this information is accurate, it is a betrayal of the nation. Otherwise, Emmanuel Macron should say it quickly.”
