US President Barack Obama still questions the activity of Russia in Syria. This has led to no result of the efforts of French President Francois Hollande to form a new grand coalition.
Both the leaders met today evening for more than an hour in the Oval Office and Obama said the Americans stand by their friends in good times as well as during bad times.
Obama is avoiding the coalition as that would also include Russia in it. He said the US and France will bring to justice the perpetrators of Paris attacks on November 13 that killed 129 innocent people.
Obama added further the ISIS poses a serious threat to the world and they cannot be tolerated. The Islamic militant must be destroyed and both the countries will do it together.
Earlier today Turkey shot down Russian warplane near to the Syria border alleging it violated the airspace even after repeated warnings.
