Europe should lift sanctions imposed on Russia if they agree on how to defeat jihadists and bring peace to Syria, former French Prime Minister Francois Fillon said Friday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The French National Assembly voted on Thursday to back a resolution that called on the government to scrap economic restriction that were imposed on Russia at the height of the Ukraine crisis in summer 2014. The vote was not legally binding.

"If we agree on a joint strategy on how to defeat Islamic State [Daesh, outlawed in Russia] and settle the Syrian crisis politically, we’ll have to remove sanctions because you cannot have sanctions in place against allies," Fillon, a member of the French lower house of parliament, said at debates in Lausanne.

In January, France’s Economy, Finance and Industry Minister Emmanuel Macron said Paris hoped that anti-Russia sanctions would be lifted this summer.
