screen and back russia and france say they have a common enemy in i.s.i.l., and are joining forces to fight them. today francis hollande met with his russian counterpart vladimir putin, they agreed to begin sharing intelligence and coordinating air strikes. vladimir putin said russia was willing to work with the u.s. taking the fight to i.s.i.l. was on the agenda in the u.k. >> reporter: the case for expanding war. david cameron essentially said britain is in the cross-hairs of the islamic state. >> the reason for act g >> the reason for acting s a direct threat to i.s.i.l. is to our country and way of life.
>> he asked parliament to consider bombing i.s.i.l. they hit i.s.i.l. in a rock. under the plan. >> if we believe action can protect us, with our allies, we should be part of that action, not standing aside from it. >> britain was rattled by the attacks in paris, leaving 130 dead. the french president is trying to bring a coalition together. tuesday, in washington. with president obama. tonight, in moscow. russian president putin angry over the shooting down of a bomb by nato member turkey, expressed solidarity with france, saying it's a fight against a common evil and russia is ready. >> we are ready to support every effort fighting with i.s.i.l. and other terrorist organisations. >> the coalition is unglued over the sticking point of whether
bashar al-assad needs to be removed. russia still supports them. they have the western-led coalition involving the gulf states, and we have russian-led coalition involving iran and the regime. they need to come together on the issue of fighting extremism. >> do they expect it to be a war-winning strategy. >> the leader of the opposition labour party says he will not support bombing, questioning effective almost, but will allow voting members to vote their conscience. >> cameron may have a better chance. seven attacks have been thwarted in britain, and linked to i.s.i.l. refugees flood europe, driving the debate about what to do. a u.n. security council resolution calls on member states to take all necessary measures against the islamic state.
>> cameron promises no british combat troops and says air power has muscle that they need. >> the arguments on the royal air force tornados, the raptor and surveillance pods and the high tech missiles that the coalition can't use those capabilities routinely over syria, let alone on the drones, that causes inflexibility to the coalition, and reduces military effectiveness. >> david cameron fears that an air strike addressed the fear that air strikes could increase the threat of terror in london and britain. british intelligence knows that this country is in the top tier of targets of i.s.i.l., and it's better to deal with the threats sooner, rather than later. the ambassador presented to the coalition and is a visiting scholar at carnegie europe and
joins us at brussels. what is your main take away from the press conference between president francis hollande and vladimir putin, was any news made? >> i think there was progress made. i think the french president and observers in the western communities didn't have much for a grand coalition discussed in the media. a grand coalition means a joined common center. you are not about to see that. you are not going to see in the u.s.-led coalition, an addition of a few russian air force officers, this is out of question. what is at stake is more information about who does what, in order to avoid mishaps, accidents and that kind of thing. more importantly, i think the message from francis hollande,
was that where has russia, as its own objectives, the important thing, that it focuses more on i.s.i.l. now. after all, syria is the i.s.i.s. the bombing of the russian airliner, and the bombing in paris make for a common pose, and this was a main message of francis hollande, and this has been heard. it doesn't mean that it's 100% consistency between the objectives of the western coalition and russia, that we knew. >> and one of the disagreements is what to do with the syrian president bashar al-assad. and we heard francis hollande say that bashar al-assad has no face in the future. vladimir putin calls him an ali in the fight against i.s.i.l. can the west and russia tight
together without figuring out what to do with the future. >> it's a strange situation. if you wanted a wees of diplomacy, you'd have to sort out the differences. you have several actors with differentar am terse, and we have to take this into account. the best we can do, we can hope for from this meeting is to make sure that russia understands that the west is united in seeing bashar al-assad as no part of the final transition in syria, but that is set aside while everyone is increasing the efforts against i.s.i.l. >> how much do you think the downing of the russian jet by turkey will compliment the effort of building a stronger coalition against i.s.i.l. >> it complicates things, and the tone of the turkish
president in his interview was stern. the tone of vladimir putin was stern. it is now about smothering i.s.i.l. smothering i.s.i.l. goes through two different things. one is the smuggle. and the other is jihadist. if you remember when francis hollande was in washington. he insisted on turkey sailing the border to prevent jihadis to come and go. these are the actions from the community, that they were part of the coalition, and the best hope tonight after these series of talks, is that everyone will agree that there is one common enemy. >> thank you for joining us. belgium has lowered the security threat level in brussels, ending six days of a maximum alert
