France to allocate artillery to Iraq's Arm Forces
France supports fight against ISIS
France will supply weapons to Iraq to support its fight against the Islamic State group. French President Francois Hollande said this on Friday, Ukrinform reports.
"This morning at the defense council, I took the decision as part of the anti-Daesh coalition to make weapons available to Iraqi forces," Hollande said, using another name for IS.
Hollande stressed he will send the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier.
According to him, the artillery will be sent next month, and the aircraft will be in Iraq at the end of September.
As for deploying French Arm Forces in Iraq, Hollande completely denied that possibility.
"We support our allies in Iraq and Syria but we are not deploying ground troops," he stressed.
