G20 Leaders Vow To Tighten Border Controls In The Wake Of Paris Attacks

Speaking at the end of the meeting, the US President Barack Obama said the Paris attacks were a setback in the fight against the terror group, but sending American troops in Syria would be a mistake.

Talking to the press Obama said the Islamic State (ISIL) is face of evil and the attacks on French capital were terrible and sickening setback.

He added Paris is not alone and there were attacks in other countries too like Beirut, Ankara and Iraq.

The G20 leaders now have agreed to step up border controls and aviation security as well in a joint statement.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said this is the first time the grop of twenty countries have gone into such sort of detail.

Meanwhile, on Sunday several French aircrafts bombarded heavily in Raqqa city of Syria that is said to be the capital of ISIS.
