MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Monday, Le Drian is expected to visit Moscow to discuss anti-terrorist cooperation with Russian leadership.
"We will have an exchange [of views] on what we consider to be terrorist groups, and how Russia could strengthen its activities against our only enemy — Daesh," Le Drian said, as quoted by the French Ouest-France newspaper.
Le Drian and Shoigu are also expected to discuss the exchange of information on Daesh fighters from France and Russia.
Moscow has been carrying out precision airstrikes against Daesh, outlawed in Russia, in Syria since September 30, at the request of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Paris has been bombing Daesh positions as part of US-led coalition of some 60 nations in both Syria and Iraq.
