France, US, Russia to forge military alliance against ISIS: Hollande

French President Francois Hollande said Wednesday that Russia, the US and France will form a military pact to fight ISIS, adding that he will personally discuss the coordination of operations during his talks with US President Obama on November 24 and with Russian President Putin two days later.
Commenting on a major counterterror operation earlier in the day to locate the perpetrators of the attacks in Paris, Hollande said, "The events in Saint Denis reaffirm that we are in a state of war, a war with terrorism, terrorism that drove us to war. This terrorist organization, the Islamic State, has weapons, finances, oil resources and territory. It has allies, including some in our country."
