France on sanctions

The French Ambassador said on 15 October that France wanted to avoid sanctions (using some strong language) and that the litmus test for a legitimate solution was that “all political actors be involved, including President Sidi Mohamed Ould Sheikh Abdallah and his supporters, as well as General Aziz, parliamentarians favoring him and the democratic opposition, and in the course of dealing with each other the political class in Mauritania also includes the ordinary people.” There are some people taking this as a rejection of the idea of reinstating Abdallahi’s term. I’m not so sure though.
