Fight against Daesh – Statement by Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development (November 27, 2015)


Cooperation between everyone against Daesh [so-called ISIL] is our main objective. It’s the purpose of the diplomatic efforts made since the Paris attacks.

Cooperation between all the Syrian forces, including the Syrian army, against Daesh is clearly desirable but, as I’ve said consistently, it can be considered only in the framework of a credible political transition. That’s the objective we’re resolutely pursuing.
