France's president rejected Thursday any cooperation with Bashar Assad whom he accused of being a "de-facto ally" of jihadists wreaking havoc in Syria and Iraq, and urged a "humanitarian and military" response to the threat.Speaking at an annual Paris gathering of ambassadors from around the world, Francois Hollande touched on crises in both countries as well as those rocking Ukraine and Libya -- all of which he said affected France directly. Hollande reiterated his proposal to hold an international conference in Paris "to organize the coordination of international action against ISIS on humanitarian, security and military fronts".His comments came after Assad's regime said Monday that it was willing to work with the international community, including Washington, to tackle ISIS militants in the war-ravaged country.
