U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday (December 1) evening returned home to the Washington, D.C. area following a climate change summit in Paris.

Obama met with Turkish, Russian and French leaders on the sidelines of the summit, a week after Turkish jets shot down a Russian warplane along the Syrian border.

Tensions between Russia and Turkey have complicated U.S. efforts to prod Moscow into steering its military might towards Islamic State rather than Western-backed Syrian opposition groups.
