France rejects Trump’s remarks over ’15 attacks

PARIS, France Saturday rejected US President Donald Trump’s remarks over the 2015 deadly attacks in Paris, calling on the American leader to “respect the victims.” Scores of French citizens were victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris in 2015, and the courageous French forces saved hundreds of people, the foreign ministry said in a statement.

Trump, during a speech at the National Rifle Association yesterday, said the Paris attacks could have resulted in less casualties if the victims carried weapons.

The foreign ministry said every country were free to determine its own legislations related to possession of weapons.

France, it added, was proud to be one of the countries with strict gun laws.
