Dear friends and compatriots, 

Today we celebrate the call of June 18, 1940.

With this call from General de Gaulle from London 80 years ago, addressing all French people via the BBC, he condemned the ceasefire of some French military leaders with the enemy, urging them not to resist the flames of resistance and join the strategy of uniting allied forces.

Respecting this call, let me add that on June 18, 1940, General de Gaulle presented to France the light of the destiny, which was sovereignty, and, consequently, the independence was preserved and the French people became the leaders of the free nations.

Thank you.
