PARIS, Jan 14 – Members of the U.S.-led coalition fighting Daesh will meet in Paris next week to reinforce efforts against the group, France’s defence minister said on Thursday, adding that the militants were clearly retreating in Iraq.

France was the first country to join U.S.-led air strikes in Iraq. Since the Paris attacks by Daesh in November, it has stepped up its aerial bombing campaign of the group, including in Syria, contributing about 20 percent of coalition strikes.

“We struck last night in Mosul on a Daesh telecommunications centre, a propaganda centre. What we can say today is that Daesh is retreating in Iraq,” Jean-Yves Le Drian said on BFM TV, referring to the Arabic acronym for the Daesh.

The minister said he would host his U.S., British and German counterparts in Paris next week to refine strategy and discuss tactics.

“We’ll see how we can intensify our efforts in Iraq and Syria,” he said, adding that Daesh was on the back foot in Iraq and that French jets had struck seven times since Monday.

He said that at some point the Iraqi army and Kurdish Peshmerga forces supported by the coalition would need to launch the battle for Mosul, the largest city held by Daesh in Iraq.

“It’s very complicated. We will have to ensure the Iraqi and Kurdish forces are sufficiently battle-hardened to lead this battle,” Le Drian said.

French officials have this week been critical of Russian strikes in Syria with Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius saying Moscow had to immediately stop bombing civilians, something that was hindering efforts to hold peace talks later this month.

“If the principle Russian objective is to fight Daesh, then they must first hit Daesh. At the moment that is not the case, and there is a very strong tendency for it to strike rebels, the moderate opposition fighting (Syrian President) Bashar al-Assad,” he said.
