    France would not be extending its state of emergency, introduced over terrorist attacks in November and expiring on July 26.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – French President Francois Hollande confirmed Thursday that the country would not be extending its state of emergency, introduced over terrorist attacks in November and expiring on July 26.

    "We cannot extend the state of emergency forever. We now have a law allowing to act against terrorism," Hollande said as quoted by the Elysee Palace twitter account.

    The state of emergency has been announced in France following the November 13 terrorist attack in Paris.

    On November 13, Islamic terrorists conducted a series of coordinated attacks in the French capital, killing 130 people and injuring over 360, many critically. The Daesh outlawed in Russia and many other countries, claimed responsibility for the attack.
