Deputy in France's National Assembly Jacques Myard told Sputnik France that the Paris terror attacks force France to reconsider its foreign policy objectives.

A deputy in France's National Assembly has called on French politicians to reconsider the country's foreign policy in the aftermath of Friday's terrorist attacks in Paris, the deadliest in the country's history. Six separate strikes on the city's residents left at least 128 people dead and another 180 injured.

The interview Jacques Myard gave Sputnik France.

"It's very simple, we are at war. We are fighting against different kinds of jihadists and the Islamic State," Jacques Myard, who is a deputy for the Les Republicains party in France's lower house of parliament.

"We must arm ourselves, we must be very vigilant, there is no alternative," Myard told Sputnik on Saturday, explaining that in his opinion, the battle against terror in Syria is one where France has made some wrong moves.

"We must go further, France needs to reexamine its foreign policy, particularly in Syria. I think we have followed a mistaken policy. Today, those who are fighting the jihadists are those in Damascus, with the support of Iran and Russia."

Though "Bashar Assad is not a saint," said Myard, his government is not France's enemy.

"The enemy today is the Islamic State, the jihadists of al-Qaeda, it is not Bashar Assad who is the enemy of France."

"In order to put an end to terrorism, it is necessary to urgently find a solution to the crisis in Syria."

Revising Europe's policy on freedom of movement may also help France to tackle the extremist threat, said the deputy.
