PARIS - France said on Wednesday it wanted the permanent members of the UN Security Council and regional countries, including Arab states and Iran, to coordinate action against the Islamic State, the insurgents who control parts of Iraq and Syria.



"In our minds and we hope that it will be possible ... we want not only all the regional countries, including Arab states and Iran, but the five members of the Security Council, also to join this action," Foreign Minister Faurent Fabius told lawmakers.



France's president earlier on Wednesday called for an international conference to tackle the militants.
