2:10 pm
was prepared to cooperate with france to fight terrorism, but of course there was the principal that he could not give up the means that france should recognize the government, that means to have again, diplomatic relations with hamas. so i think today we are just facing where we are. it means to fight against the enemy, described by allan as being the islamic state, we are to let's say, give way to our posture and resume relation with them. it doesn't mean, that of course, by having diplomatic relation, that we are supporting bashar in all aspect of it's policy. but it is necessary, i think at the sometime. >> that will be a huge change in policy. when you went to see him
2:11 pm
