"I which to say that fortunately we have close relations with Russia to combat a terrorist threat and, in fact, it shows that sanctions are inadequate and are aiming at a wrong enemy. Russia is not our enemy in Europe and this why I always say we have to concentrate on the enemy which is terrorism and in this field, we are happy that we have a close cooperation with Russia," Jacques Myard said.
He noted that the terrorism is not a question to be dealt with only by police or intelligence.
"It is a question of society. We need to tech our country man and women that in fact we are living in a secular state in France. From the kindergarten we have to teach the principals and values of France," he said.
Russia has repeatedly refuted the accusations, and warned that the sanctions are counterproductive and undermine regional and global stability.
