TEHRAN, November 23. /TASS/. It has been reported to the Russian president that contact has been established with the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle.

"In a public mode our military (on November 20) reported about that. It was last week, on Friday," Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

On November 22, TASS reported that France’s aircraft carrier The Charles de Gaulle, currently in the eastern part of the Mediterranean sea, off Syria, established contact with the Russian military. French Defense Minister Jean-Yves le Drian said the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier, which leads a combined air and naval group near Syria, was prepared to start an operation against the militants of the terrorist organization calling itself the Islamic State (outlawed in Russia) starting from November 23.

The Charles de Gaulle carries eighteen Rafale fighters and eight Super Etendard fighters, as well as other combat and reconnaissance technologies. Previously France’s combat aircraft fleet operating in the region numbered 12 Air Force planes (six Mirage-2000 and six Rafale) based in the United Arab Emirates.
