November 17, 2015

Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with President of France Francois Hollande, at the French side’s initiative.

Following the barbaric terrorist act that caused the crash of a Russian airliner in Egypt and tragic events in France, the two leaders paid special attention to stepping up bilateral and multilateral cooperation to counter international terrorism. It was agreed to ensure closer contacts and coordination between the two countries’ military agencies and special services in the course of anti-terrorist operations conducted by Russia and France in Syria.

There is an intention to continue the personal dialogue on matters pertaining to combatting terrorism and other pressing issues during a meeting in Moscow on November 26.
