ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen on Friday (March 24) said that Russia and France needed to unite to fight global terrorism. Le Pen made the comments during talks with Vyacheslav Volodin, the speaker of the State Duma, Russia's lower house of parliament in Moscow. Russian President Vladimir Putin has long advocated teaming up with the West to take on the Islamic State group. Le Pen later met with Putin in the Kremlin, handing her a potential boost to her campaign to win next month's presidential election in France. The French presidential candidate, who has said she admires the Russian leader, was visiting Russia at the invitation of Leonid Slutsky, head of the lower house of parliament's foreign affairs committee.
