This is the worst situation the world is facing since 9/11 attacks says French President.
French President Francois Hollande while remarking about the IS militias in Iraq and Syria said: “I believe the international situation is the worst we’ve seen since 2001” and the 9/11 attacks on New York.”
“We can no longer keep to the traditional debate of intervention or non-intervention,” he said. “We consider, this terrorist group is of a different level of dangerousness than others. It is in the business of destruction. Today it is Iraq, but the caliphate is the entire region, and beyond it is obviously Europe,” he added. “We need a global strategy against this group which is well-structured, well-financed and has very sophisticated weapons,” he emphasized.
Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius characterised it as a crisis for Europe not just the Middle East.
