France, whose turn it is to preside over the next UN Security Council meeting on March 27th, says that it plans to discuss the situation of Christians and other minorities in the Middle East.

The French Foreign Minister, Laurent Fabius, told a news conference in Rabat, Morocco on 9 March that he will chair the meeting, which he said ‘will affirm that we are on the side of minorities, and we do not accept them to be persecuted’.
