Macron: 'an ally must be reliable'

"I very much regret the decision taken in Syria and I want here to commend General Mattis and the letter that came with his decision. I've known now for a year and a half how much Mattis - and our defense minister here knows this - was a reliable partner and a constant reminder of the importance of alliances. To be an ally is to fight shoulder to shouder. And so an ally must be reliable."
