French prosecutor Francois Molins calls during a visit to Belgium for Salah Abdeslam to be handed over to France, noting the "high expectation" in his country that the Paris attack suspect will be tried in French courts.
"You know as I do that the French investigating judges have issued an arrest warrant [for Abdeslam]," Molins tells journalists in Brussels. "It is now up to the Belgian justice system, and it alone, to decide on this question."
But he recalls that there is "a high expectation from the French justice system, and especially from the victims, to be able to obtain that Salah Abdeslam explains himself before French judges."
Molins says that it could take a maximum of three months for Abdeslam to be handed over to France.
