PARIS Aug 20 French President Francois Hollande
called on Wednesday for an international conference on ways of
tackling Islamic State insurgents who have seized control of
territory in Iraq and Syria.
"We can no longer keep to the traditional debate of
intervention or non-intervention," Hollande told Le Monde
newspaper in remarks published on Wednesday.
"We have to come up with a global strategy to fight this
group, which is structured, has significant financing, very
sophisticated weapons and threatens countries like Iraq, Syria
and Lebanon," he said.
