Presidents Hollande, Putin meet for talks against ISIL Presidents Hollande, Putin meet for talks against ISIL

France and Russia will share intelligence on ISIL in Syria. French President Francois Hollande and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed they share a “common enemy,” and want to make their bombing campaigns more effective.
