"We are grieving with you by the casualties suffered France, heavy casualties," he added, referring to which he said, according to the latest data, are "136 killed and over 350 injured".

in the coming days, the French president will meet with secretary General Ban Ki-moon, President of China, Xi Jinping and Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau.
"leaders of the two countries discussed measures to counter the terrorist threat, including coordination in the fight against the Islamic State (EI) ", had advanced the Kremlin, which is bringing its own campaign in Syria at the request of the government of Damascus.
the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Serguei Lavrov supported the proposal yesterday Paris to close the border between Syria and Turkey to prevent the flow of terrorists and their funding.
"I think it's a sensible proposal. I am confident that Hollande will give us more details on this. We would be willing to seriously consider the necessary measures for this purpose, "said the head of Russian diplomacy.
Hollande arrived in Moscow amid a crisis between Russia and Turkey, after two F-16 Turkish Air Force shot down two days
makes a bomber Su-24 Russian, according to Ankara, violated its airspace on Syrian-Turkish border, which Moscow continues to deny strictly. following the bloody attacks in Paris on November 13 which left 130 dead and hundreds injured, Hollande seemed to have taken a turn in its position on Russia to integrate into the international coalition, despite the support that this country has been giving Syrian President Bashar al Assad.
But his trip two days ago to Washington , where he was received by US President Barack Obama, and the incident with the Russian bomber, chilled that possibility, assessed international analysts.
United States, which like Russia is bombarding the EI in Syria, insists that Moscow must turn around their shares in that Arab country and stop supporting the government in Damascus.
Yesterday, Hollande received in Paris German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and asked that his country be involved further in the combating EI in Syria and Iraq.
So far, Germany's role in combating EI has been limited to providing logistical support to forces fighting jihadists in Syria and train Kurdish militiamen that face in the northern Iraq.
But now, Germany decided to send Tornado jets to Syria to reconnaissance the fight against the Islamic State (EI) as advanced today the German Democratic parliamentary Henning Otte.
