Obama urges Russia to join renewed effort to eliminate Islamic State
By Matt Spetalnick and Dasha Afanasieva BELEK, Turkey (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama vowed on Sunday to step up efforts to eliminate Islamic State and prevent more attacks like those in Paris, while urging Russia's Vladimir Putin to focus on combating the jihadist group in Syria.
