MOSCOW (Sputnik) – France is ready to respond to terrorists in case of an emergency, and security is better than it was two years ago when Paris was rocked by a series of deadly attacks, according to French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb in an interview with Le Journal du Dimanche newspaper, published on Sunday.
“We have not thought that such a thing could happen in France… Despite that, we are prepared for [attacks]. Our security services are now better equipped to detect threats. They do it every week without attracting much attention to it,” Collomb pointed out.
