PARIS — France’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the arrest and violence that lead to the death of Mahsa Amini on Monday.

In a statement, the ministry said that the death of the Iranian woman at the hands of Iran’s morality police is “profoundly shocking” and called for a transparent investigation to shed light on the circumstances of her death.

It added that France reaffirmed its commitment to counter violence against women and girls all over the world and would continue to advocate in favor of the generalization of the Council of Europe’s Istanbul Convention on preventing violence against women.
