PARIS, France – French President Francois Hollande will meet British Prime Minister David Cameron in Paris on Monday, November 23, to discuss the fight against terrorism and the Syrian crisis, his office said Saturday.
The meeting opens a week of intense diplomatic exchanges in which Hollande will meet with US President Barack Obama, Russia’s Vladimir Putin, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The flurry of meetings comes in the wake of France’s worst-ever terror attack which left 130 dead and has exposed holes in European intelligence and border security.
The attacks prompted both France and Russia to step up air strikes against ISIS jihadists in Syria, while pledging to work closer together in combating the group.
ISIS claimed both the Paris attacks and the downing last month of a Russian plane over Egypt, killing 224 people. – Rappler.com
