ABOARD THE CHARLES DE GAULLE - US Defense Secretary Ash Carter visited the French aircraft carrier the Charles de Gaulle in the Gulf on Saturday to highlight both countries' determination to defeat Islamic State militants.

He also met with US troops on the USS Kearsarge, an amphibious assault ship currently deployed to the Gulf in support of US efforts against Islamic State.

France has intensified air strikes against the group since it claimed responsibility for attacks on bars, restaurants, a stadium and a concert hall that killed 130 people in Paris on November 13.

Carter praised "France's willingness to do more as we do more."
