- It's in the fight against the Sunni extremists of Islamic State (IS) in Syria to collaborate with the Syrian army as it forms part of a transition to a different political system in that country. This was said by the French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius Friday.
Fabius thus clarified its position. He had woken up earlier in the day to consider the impression without working more closely with the Syrian forces to the movement IS defeat. Fabius Russian position seemed to take that in addition to air strikes also ground troops are needed in the fight against IS and that, according to the Kremlin, of course, Assad's troops.
Fabius said that he means that the Syrian armed forces can work together only if Assad's regime will stop put. The regime in the eyes of many, the main responsible for the civil war in Syria.
