Paris, July 18 , 2012

President Hollande had a meeting at the Elysée today with former foreign minister M. Hubert Védrine.

In agreement with the government, the Head of State has entrusted him with the responsibility of assessing France’s return to NATO’s integrated military command and the development of the transatlantic relationship over the coming decade.

President Hollande will be informed of the findings of this work by 31 October 2012, and these will be sent to the committee tasked with drafting the new White Paper on defence and national security, chaired by M. Jean-Marie Guéhenno, so it can take them effectively into account./.
