Updated on

French President Francois Hollande said he hasn’t yet decided whether he’ll meet with President Vladimir Putin when the Russian leader comes to Paris on Oct. 19.

In an interview with “Le Quotidien” on TMC to be broadcast on Monday, Hollande said that Russian action in Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad is “unacceptable” and that the people of Aleppo are suffering “war crimes” that will be the subject of an international investigation. Hollande said he’s still deliberating whether a meeting with Putin would be useful, according to an extract of the transcript posted on Twitter.
