2:01 am
where assassins killed 130 of our people and more than 350 others were wounded in this day of betrayal. today, the nation, the entire nation, is struggling to live. 130 names of the victims, 130 lives taken away. 130 wasted lives. 130 lives we no longer hear. and 130 joys. these women, these men, taken away the happiness of their lives because they were life. they were killed. it's because they were france they were shot dead because they were freedom that they were
2:02 am
massacred. at that such serious moment in this such painful time, with the nation in accord with itself, i address in its name our compassion and our affection and our feelings toward the families, the nearest and dearest of all those gathered here. the parents who no longer see their children. the children who will grow up without their parents. couples broken apart by love letters and brothers and sisters separated forever. 130 dead and so many wounded. forever marked. traumatized at the deepest level.
2:03 am
so, i want to say quite simply these words. france should be alongside you. we will unite to campaign and after burying the dead, we have to repair to all of you. i promise you, solemnly, that france will do everything. destroy the army that carried out these crimes. it will act without bending down to protect these children. i promise also that france remain herself such as wanted france to remain and if there is a need, a reason for us to stand up today, a reason to fight for
2:04 am
our principles. a reason to defend this republic. we find it in their memories, these women, these men, to come from over 50 areas of france, from cities, from suburbs, from villages and towns, they also came from the world. 17 countries sharing their grief with us. these women, these men on that friday the 13th where paris, a city which lives in the day and shines at night, there are on the terraces of cafes and open in meeting of ideas they were
2:05 am
sharing with the world. that evening where autumn seemed not to finish and singing at bataclan with a band of an american group showing of friendship in the concert hall for two centuries embodied the spirit of paris. these women, these men, of all ages, but the majority were less than 35 years old. they were children when the berlin wall came down. they had not had the time to believe in the end of history. and it already caught up with them. where in september of 2001, they had then understood the world was faced with new danger with the attacks of the beginning of this year upset them.
2:06 am
many, i know, had demonstrated on the 11th of january as millions of french people had. they had refused to be faced with fear or faced with the threat of terrorism. they knew that france was not the enemy of any people. but they will go where they're called to protect the weakest and be against any kind of termination. these women, these men were the youth of france. the youth of a free people. and cherish culture of its own. all cultures at the bataclan where people made music their work. music was unbearable to terrorists. it was this harmony they that wanted to break this passion and
2:07 am
this joy that they wanted to destroy with their bombs. and they will not stop it. and we can only respond to them by multiple songs and concerts and shows. we will continue to play in stadiums and in particular the stade de france in saint-denis. we will participate in the great sporting events where the most modest meet. we will also share the same emotions and different origins and cultures and confessions and faiths because we are one nation only carried by the same values. what the terrorists want, to divide us and throw us one against other. they will fail, i assure you.
2:08 am
they believe in the cult of death. we have love. love for life. those who fell on the 13th of november were france. all france. they were students, journalists, teachers, people who worked in restaurants and engineers. architects, professionals, carpenters, waiters, people who worked in advertising, artists. they were all france. the talents of the world. all of them wanted to succeed for themselves for their family and for their country. let us remember their faces and names, but also their hopes and joys and dreams and we will act tomorrow. we know the enemy.
2:09 am
it is hatred. that which kills s in copenha and london. the enemy. fanatics to submit people. that is to say islamism which is this enemy which we will defeat with our forces. those of republic with our weapons and with bombs and democracy and institutions with rights and law and this fight, we can count on our military undertaken engaged in operations in syria and iraq. we can count on our police
2:10 am
officers together with justice who carried out admirable acts to put terrorists out of harm. we can pounce on the parliament to adopt all the measures of defense in the interest of the country and spirit of national agreement and respect of fundamental freedoms. then above all, we can count on every french woman and french man to show vigilance to show humanity and dignity. we will carry out this fight to the end and we will win it. being loyal of every idea of france it is the art of living. a wish to be together and
2:11 am

2:14 am
russia's strategy? >> reporter: i don't think so. the use of the phrase jihadist groups covers a plethora of factions on the ground in syria. the other various rebel factions of the groups fighting against the assad regime. that lack of discrimination or discernment has been reinforced over the last couple days. the rebels. the turkmen backed by turkey, filmed themselves on a cell phone shouting akbar is great. one of them, the pilots of the aircraft killed in the russian jet shot down. the russians to deal with and brought in to talks to form a

2:33 am
matthew, bashar al assad, the sticking point in the discussions. what will it take to get putin to ease on support of assad? guarantees that russia's base in syria can remain open or relaxation of sanctions in ukraine? >> reporter: i'm not sure that for the kremlin these issues are linked. the russians have strong military presence. it is getting stronger by the day. they have strong economic ties there. it is more than that. they see syria as the last foothold in the middle east. this is about russian powers abroad. it is maintaining the influence on the global stage. the russians will be reluctant to let go of that. any assurances from washington will not change their mind. when russia is divided over bashar al assad, russians are backing into the hills.
2:34 am
saying he doesn't have a future or role to play in syria. that problem has not yet been resolved. it is standing in the way of the grand coalition with russia and the west over syria. >> and matthew, the syrian people should decide. how can there be an election or a status quo by the syrian people on who should lead them? >> reporter: well, it is going to be extremely difficult and it is not practical for any election. i imagine it to be at this stage. what putin is saying it is for the syrian people to decide, he is talking about not allowing the united states or nato to come in with a change. that is something russia wants to avoid. the iraq scenario. they don't want to see an arab
2:35 am
spring scenario. they want the situation to maintained. the status quo is what russia wants. to make sure they support the regime of bashar al assad. >> matthew chance, thank you. we are getting new details this morning on russia's retaliation against turkey for shooting down the war plane. a russian cargo plane unloading an anti-aircraft missile at the russian base in syria. economic sanctions also rolled out. targeting everything from turkish imports to russian tourism to joint energy projects. turkey will not apologize for downing the russian jet. in the meantime, word that iran was instrumental in rescuing the plane's co- pilot. cnn cannot confirm the report that the head of iran could force special operations unit
2:36 am
was behind the rescue. let's bring in more with cnn's ian lee from istanbul. >> reporter: alison, the rescue mission was made up of members of the lebanese militant group hezbollah as well as commandos from the bashar al assad government. and behind enemy lines. they knew the gps of the pilot. they were able to go in and get him out of there. it is interesting, though, russia would lead the fate to other commandos. they tried to launch a rescue mission that came under issue where one marine died. it shows close trust between moscow and tehran that the russians would allow the operation to take place. >> back to the retaliation now for downing the russian fighter jet. now russia putting the economic
2:37 am
sanctions upon turkey. turkey and russia tight trading partners. how is this upping the tensions with the two countries? >> reporter: this has the real possibility of being devastating for turkey's economy. russia is turkey's second largest economy. they get 60% of their gas from russia. and people here are worried that tap could be turned off. especially in the winter. they also have a multibillion dollar nuclear power plant they are working with. to put the squeeze on turkey between turkey and moscow is very much heated. turkey is more conciliatory. they are saying they are right. becky anderson talked to the president of turkey yesterday. take a listen. >> was it a mistake and will you apologize? >> translator: i think if
2:38 am
there's a person that needs to apologize, it is not us. those who violated our air space needs to apologize. >> reporter: both sides are saying the other needs to apologize. it is important to point out the turkish president on the day of the incident tried to call putin to talk to him about it. all he got was silence. at the end of the month, there is another opportunity at a climate summit in paris for the two to meet. it is not known if it will happen. also, later next month on the 15th, the turkish president is scheduled to go to moscow to meet with putin. we do not know if that trip will go ahead. >> we shall see if they will make friends in the other meetings. ian lee, thank you. breaking news from paris. french president francois hollande just spoken at a remembrance ceremony for the 130 victims of the paris attacks
2:39 am
that happened two weeks ago today. this as alpolice keep up the manhunt for the attackers. we have more from jim bittermann. jim, the president saying france must repair. >> reporter: he said he wanted to restore the spirit of paris. he made a solemn promise, as he put it in his remarks, that they would capture the people responsible for threatening people in france. this ceremony just ending. a parade of vehicles coming out. an amazing display of unity. not only were all of the members of the press government, but politicians of every stripe. this was about the victims, the 130 people killed, the 350 injured. for much of the ceremony devoted to the reading of the names of the 130 people who were slain

and their ages and one of the things that struck all of us here was the ages. some of these people were as young as 17 years old who were killed. and mostly very young people indeed. president and members of the community looked solemn and saddened as the names were read out for us. >> very solemn moment, jim, especially with two suspects still on the loose. thank you. retailers are hoping record sales as 30 million shoppers line up for black friday deals. that's next. i have asthma... of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms.
