President Francois Hollande and his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama vowed to reinforce their counter-terrorism cooperation following the attacks in Paris, according to a White House statement.

“The President reiterated the United States’ steadfast, unwavering support for the people of France, our oldest ally and friend, and reaffirmed the offer of any necessary support to the French investigation,” the statement said, after the pair had spoken on the phone.

“The two leaders pledged to work together, and with nations around the world, to defeat the scourge of terrorism.”

“Barack Obama wanted to express his support to the French people in the face of this terrible tragedy,” said a source close to the French presidency.

“They reaffirmed their commitment to working closely in the fight against terrorism.”
