France calls for emergency meeting of coalition to discuss benefit of Turkish attacks on ISIS

France on Thursday called for an emergency meeting of the international coalition against ISIS to discuss the possibility of ISIS taking advantage of Turkish attacks on northern and eastern Syria.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said in an interview with France 2 television on Thursday that the coalition should hold a meeting as soon as possible, given that ISIS could benefit from changing conditions in northern Syria.

The minister added that the coalition "must say today what we must do, how Turkey wants to move forward and how we can ensure the security of places where the militants are being held?"

"Everything has to be on the table to be clear."

France is moving internationally to stop the Turkish attacks on areas of the northern and eastern Syria, and summoned the Turkish ambassador in Paris to inform him of the rejection of these attacks.
