Negotiations with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in Versailles helped Russia and France make progress on the Syria issue, French President Emmanuel Macron said in an interview with the Journal du Dimanche weekly on Sunday.

“After the negotiations with the Russian president in Versailles, I state that we are moving forward on both these issues. Cooperation between our special services on the ground has been raised to a completely different level than before,” the French president said.

“I’m set to hold a tough position on anyone’s use of chemical weapons in Syria. In the event that this happens, I have ensured that France actually gives a prompt response to this even before it resorts to words. I also demand that humanitarian aid be provided in order to ensure the salvation of civilians in the battle area. These are my two red lines on the Syrian dossier,” Macron said.

The French president also noted differences between France and Russia on the Syria issue.
“Vladimir Putin is an ally of Bashar Assad while I hold the position that I do not consider the removal of Bashar Assad from power as an obligatory condition for any further initiatives on Syria,” the French president noted.

“But at the same time I am looking for those measures that would allow for restoration in that region while putting an end to terrorism,” Macron said.

“This is the difference in the position with my predecessor in the presidential post,” Macron said, meaning former French President Francois Hollande.

The first talks between Putin and Macron took place on May 29 and lasted about three hours. The Russian leader visited France on the invitation of the French president.

What is gerotophile? D’you mean “gerontophile”? Like Muhammad with his 1st wife? As long as Manu doesn’t turns paedophile, it’s OK. Thus, Muhammad went further in paraphilia, shagging his dead aunt, nevertheless, Brigitte is more attractive than many 40y old only women which are already slums at such an age : I know some who were more wrinkled at only 37 old, thanks to UVs! Anyway, it’s not a French habit to care about Prez’ private life : we totally don’t care even if he organises orgies at the presidential palace, this is not our problem as long it isn’t… Read more »

Before France acts on the alleged chemical use proper investigation needs to be done that’s unbiased and investigators need to reach the ground.Otherwise France needs to be held accountable for any violation of Syrian sovereignty.

In a nutshell, Macron is only saying that France is planning another White Helmits’ false flag gas attack to have an excuse to bomb the Syrian Arab Army.

Never turn your back on a crusader or any progeny of a crusader. Macron is a french colonialist and is entirely held to ransom by the petro$US neo cons. He says he will act first and think later on any chemical weapons assault! meaning he wont investigate, he wont wait for a thorough analysis, he will blithely go along with any false flag provocation and bombs away. It is tantamount to an invitation to the head choppers.

Another trigger happy klutz from the west.
