MOSCOW - Speaking in regards to the talks between the U.S. and Russia regarding Syria, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov noted that consultations in Geneva will be held next week.

When questioned about U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's visit to Moscow, he added, "In Moscow, the two sides discussed the need to intensify efforts, the need to accelerate the pace of peace-making efforts, so this is indeed happening."

Peskov did not rule out the possibility of deploying additional Russian troops to Syria to join Russia's deployment already in the country. He pointed out, "the contingent could be increased very quickly, if necessary."

In response to a report in The Wall Street Journal that asserted Russian warplanes had nearly bombed U.S. and British special forces in Syria, Peskov denied the claims, saying, "[the Kremlin] does not know about this incident, so there is nothing to comment on based on these newspaper reports." He referred further questioning to the Defense Ministry

PARIS - French President Fran├žois Hollande has stated that France will supply weapons to Baghdad to fight the Islamic State terror group, but will not deploy ground forces to Iraq.

AFP quoted Hollande as saying, "This morning at the defence council, I took the decision as part of the anti-Daesh coalition to make weapons available to Iraqi forces." Daesh is another name for the Islamic State.

He added that the weapons will be received in Iraq sometime in August.

The weapons to be delivered include artillery. These will be operated by Iraqi soldiers, who will receive training by French advisers.

Although France will not deploy combat ground troops, it is sending the Charles de Gaulle, France's aircraft carrier, to the region in September to "allow us to intensify strikes against terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq using our Rafale jets," according to Hollande.
