Via The War Files –  Newly elected French President Macron formally warned that “France would respond immediately to any use of chemical weapons in Syria,” while at the same time urged a closer partnership with Russia in the fight against the Islamic State. “A very clear red line exists on our side – that is the use of chemical weapons by whomever,” Macron said at a joint news conference. The meeting, held in the Palace of Versailles, was aimed at “defining the two leaders’ personal relationship” after the mistrust during the French presidential election campaign and suggestions that “Russia had sought to meddle in the French democratic process.”
