New York: United States President Barack Obama today announced that his country will share intelligence with France in the aftermath of the ‘terrible and sickening’ storm of attacks in Paris and urged the other nations to contribute in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
According to ABC News, Obama said that the Paris attacks were a “terrible and sickening” setback”.
The US President, who was responding to media posers at the G-20 Summit in Antalya, asserted that ISIS is the “face of evil”.
He also said that it would not be enough to “take on ISIL in Iraq and Syria alone”.
Expressing solidarity with France and condemning the deadly attacks, Obama earlier said the attack was directed specifically towards the civilised world and assured his full support in hunting down the perpetrators.
“The skies have been darkened by the horrific attacks that took place in Paris just a day and a half ago. We stand in solidarity with France as this is an attack on the civilised world,” Obama said after holding bilateral talks with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the G20 Summit yesterday.
