PARIS - French President Francois Hollande will travel to Washington on November 24 and to Moscow on November 26 to discuss the fight against Islamic State and situation in Syria, the presidency said on Tuesday.

The trips to meet President Barack Obama and President Vladimir Putin would be made "in the context of action by the international community in the struggle against Daesh and the effort to rectify the situation in Syria," it said, referring to the Arabic acronym for Islamic State.

Hollande on Monday called for a grand coalition to fight the group behind last Friday's bloody attacks on the French capital.
