"Republic will destroy terrorists": Hollande

Tue, Nov 17, 2015, 09:41 AM
Paris, Nov 17: "The terrorists will never destroy the republic, because the republic will destroy them," French President Francois Hollande said in a speech addressed to the two chambers of parliament.

"The acts committed on Friday night were acts of war. They left at least 129 people dead and many others injured," Xinhua quoted Hollande as saying on Monday.

"We are in a war against jihadi terrorism which threatens the whole world," he said in reference to the attacks in Paris which included simultaneous shootings, explosions at six places.

Following the air strikes carried out by the military on Sunday in Raqqa, Syria, Hollande announced that France would intensify its operations in Syria.

"We will continue the strikes in the coming weeks," he said, adding that the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle would be deployed to the eastern Mediterranean which would "triple our capacity of action."

"There will be no respite, no truce," stressed a resolute Hollande.

He proposed the security council of the UN to meet as soon as possible to adopt a resolution to destroy Islamic State (IS).

In the meantime, Hollande would meet the US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin to form "one great coalition" facing the terrorists in Syria, he said.
