BELEK, Turkey - US President Barack Obama arrived in Turkey on Sunday for a summit of world leaders that has taken on a sense of urgency following deadly Paris attacks that pushed the fight against Islamic State to the top of the agenda.

Obama, who called the Paris attacks "an outrageous attempt to terrorize civilians" on the eve of his departure, faces the question of how the West should respond now that it has become clear that Islamic State poses a threat far beyond its strongholds in Syria and Iraq.

Washington already expects France to retaliate by taking on a larger role in the US-led coalition's bombing campaign against Islamic State.

But Obama also seeks to coax other European and Middle Eastern countries into more tangible steps to show their military commitment, a US official said before the president embarked on his nine-day foreign trip.
