Obama urges Russia and Turkey to focus on IS over jet-downing crisis

U.S. President Barack Obama urged Russia and Turkey to focus on fight against the Islamic State (IS) and move beyond the chain of furious debates regarding the downed Russian jet by Turkey, on the sidelines of the climate talks in Paris, on Dec. 1.

The statement followed Obama's meeting with Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan. Turkey's downing of Russian SU-24 bomber along the Syrian border last week has triggered tension between Moscow and Ankara.

Obama also reiterated Turkey was a NATO ally and U.S. backed Turkey's right to defend itself, while speaking to reporters.

Moscow has declared economic sanctions, while advising Russian citizens not to visit Turkey.

"We all have a common enemy and that is ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) and I want to make sure we focus on that threat," Obama said.
