US President Barack Obama called on Russia and Turkey to move beyond their diplomatic spat and focus on the Islamic State jihadist threat, following a meeting with his Turkish counterpart in Paris on Tuesday.
"We discussed how Turkey and Russia can work together to de-escalate tensions and find a diplomatic path to resolve this issue," Obama told reporters after meeting with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. "We all have a common enemy and that is (the Islamic State group) and I want to make sure we focus on that threat."
