French Prime Minister swears to do all in his power to thwart terrorism in the country create a government able to protect its citizens.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — French Prime Minister Manuel Valls stated on Friday that he would do everything in his power to defend the nation against terrorism, discrimination and hate crimes as he unveiled new regional capitals in ongoing territorial reform.

"We must become a government that protects against the risk of terrorism and delinquency. But also against inequality, discrimination, tensions and hatred," iTele cited Valls as saying on the heels of the last Cabinet meeting before the body went on a summer break.

The reforms redraw borders and merge French departments into larger regions, with final decisions to be made by newly formed regional councils in December 2015. It is expected to improve bureaucratic transparency.

Valls said that regional budgets for security, employment and youth issues will be a priority, but added it takes "stability and visibility."

France has been on a security alert since beginning earlier this year following deadly Islamist shootings at a center-city magazine office and in a market in the Paris suburbs, as well as a failed attack in June at a gas factory near the city of Lyon.
