    Retired French General Jean-Bernard Pinatel told Sputnik on Monday that Russia is the best partner for France in the struggle against the Islamist threat.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In the past months, a series of terrorist attacks has shaken Europe, with the Daesh group, outlawed in many countries including Russia, claiming responsibility.

    "Russia is our best partner in the fight against the Islamist threat… I can say that there are high-ranking politicians in France, such as [Francois] Fillon, a presidential candidate, and even lawmakers like [Thierry] Mariani and others, as well as military officials, who fully share my opinion," Pinatel said.

    He added that the interests advocated by NATO do not coincide with the interests of France as it is an organization "serving the Anglo-Saxon interests."
