"Today, cooperation between Russia and France may promote peace and stability in Europe and worldwide. Our countries are dealing with multiple global challenges: among them is terrorism. Russia displayed its resolve in fighting terrorism and succeeded in this area," Chevenement said at his meeting with Konstantin Kosachev on Wednesday.
The French government's envoy has commented on the situation in Syria, emphasizing that the conflicts in the Middle East should be resolved in accordance with the principle of territorial integrity and nations' right for self-determination.
Chevenement has also announced that he had brought a special message for Russian President Vladimir Putin from his French counterpart.
"This message concerns a number of decisions, the result of their [Putin and Macron's] phone talks, but it also concerns a practical application… It mainly concerned Syria," he told reporters.
Macron and Putin held a phone conversation in early September, during which they expressed their readiness to increase bilateral coordination on the Syrian settlement and stressed the need for further promotion of the political settlement of the crisis.
