Hollande meeting with Obama, Putin has been scheduled
French President Francois Hollande will travel to Washington on November 24 to meet with Obama and to Moscow on November 26 to meet Putin, to discuss the fight against Islamic State and the situation in Syria, the presidency said in a statement on Tuesday.
The trips to meet President Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin would be made “in the context of action by the international community in the struggle against Daesh and the effort to rectify the situation in Syria,” it said, referring to the Arabic acronym for Islamic State.
Hollande on Monday called for a grand coalition to fight the group behind last Friday’s bloody attacks on the French capital.
