France thanks Germany for offering help against Daesh

Fight against terrorism/Germany’s commitments in Syria and Iraq – Communiqué issued by the Presidency of the Republic

Paris, 26 November 2015

The French President thanks Chancellor Merkel very much for her offer to participate in protection, reconnaissance and logistics missions during operations to combat Daesh [so-called ISIL] in Syria and Iraq.

This very significant contribution shows Germany’s desire to play a leading role in fighting the common scourge of Daesh. It also testifies to the exceptional closeness between France and Germany.

The President is convinced that the other Europeans will follow this momentum by responding to his request for solidarity from European Union member states./.
