Obama Pledges Solidarity With France

President Barack Obama pledge solidarity with France and promised to work with France and other allies to intensify the US-led campaign against the Islamic State, saying America will not be cowed by the scourge of terrorism.

“We cannot succumb to fear,” Obama said, standing alongside French President Francois Hollande after they met at the White House to discuss the anti-ISIS mission. “Make no mistake, we will win, and groups like ISIL will lose.”

Hollande’s trip to Washington was part of a diplomatic push to get the U.S. and other nations to bolster efforts to destroy the militant group that has claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks.
