The United States will intensify coordination with France on a military response in Syria to the Paris attacks as well as on intelligence sharing, a top White House adviser said Sunday.

“First of all, we’re clearly going to work very closely with the French in terms of intelligence sharing, also in terms of their military response inside of Syria,” deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said.

“The French have been with us in Iraq and Syria and conducting airstrikes. I think we want to continue to intensify that coordination,” he said on ABC’s “This Week” talk show.
