Official speeches and statements - October 28, 2019
The death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has dealt a new blow to Daesh [so-called ISIL], following the fall of the terrorist group’s last territorial strongholds in March.
I welcome the operation led by our American allies.
The fight against Daesh is not over and we must continue it together, within the framework of the [Global] Coalition against Daesh, taking into account the latest regional developments.
This will be the subject of the forthcoming discussions that France has proposed to its coalition partners.
