French President Emmanuel Macron said Paris considers a dialogue with Russia, Turkey, and Iran on Syria a necessary part of any settlement to Syria crisis.

According to Sutniknews, Macron claimed on Sunday that the missile attack against Syria was 'legitimate' and conducted within the international community framework, IRNA reported.

Meanwhile, Macron also remarked that Paris considers a dialogue with Russia, Turkey, and Iran on Syria being a necessary part of any settlement.

“I have said from the very beginning that in order to reach a sustainable solution on Syria it is necessary to talk to Iran, Russia and Turkey. It is necessary to be engaged in dialogue with Iran, because of its presence in Syria.”

Macron also claimed that the military strike against Syria which France was parts of it was successful.

According to the Russian military, US, UK, and France fired over 100 cruise and air-to-surface missiles, most of which were shot down by the Syrian air defense.

Syrian authorities have repeatedly said they had previously destroyed all chemical weapons stockpiles.

Russia slammed the US-led airstrikes as an act of aggression against a sovereign state, and President Putin said that the attack was conducted in violation of international law.

In the meantime, Macron confirmed that he would visit Russia in May.
