The newly elected President of France, Emmanuel Macron, stated on Monday that any use of chemical weapons in Syria will result in a direct attack by the French military.
Macron added that the use of chemical weapons is a red-line for France and will result in reprisals.
The French President believes his regime and the Kremlin must work together to defeat terrorists in Syria.
“Our two countries will cooperate on Syria; this is essential,” Macron said.
“We need strong cooperation because we have a joint priority, which is the fight against terrorism,” the French President added.
