WATCH: President Obama set to hold press conference on Monday
ANTALYA, Turkey (AP) - Pressed for a strong answer to the Islamic State group’s attacks in Paris, the world’s top industrial and developing nations are set to outline their coordinated response to what President Barack Obama has described as an “attack on the civilized world.”
President Obama has scheduled a news conference at 10:30 a.m. before he leaves the G-20 Summit in Turkey for the Philippines.
NH1 News will air the press conference live on NH1.com.
The leaders of the Group of 20 leading rich and developing nations were wrapping up their two-day summit in Turkey Monday against the backdrop of heavy French bombardment of the Islamic State's stronghold in Iraq. The bombings marked a significant escalation of France's role in the fight against the extremist group.
Numerous meetings about next steps in Syria and the Islamic State campaign were being scheduled on the sidelines of the summit at the Turkish seaside resort of Antalya.
Obama was to huddle with European leaders from France, Britain, Germany and Italy. French President Francois Hollande skipped the summit to stay home and deal with the aftermath of the attacks, but Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius planned to attend the meeting with the U.S. president.
