President Barack Obama said Tuesday the U.S. stands "united in total solidarity" with France following the Paris massacre to "deliver justice to these terrorists and to defend our nations."
Standing alongside French counterpart François Hollande, Obama said ISIS “cannot be tolerated and must be destroyed. And we must do it together.”
"We cannot succumb to fear," Obama said.
As his nation reels from attacks that left 130 dead just under two weeks ago, Hollande has been on a mission to get the international community to bolster the campaign against the Islamic State.
He said Tuesday he and Obama have agreed to broaden the scope of the airstrikes against ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Obama stressed that Russia could play a role in efforts against ISIS if it's willing to focus on defeating the terror group.
Hollande met with British Prime Minister David Cameron on Monday and will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday. On Thursday, Hollande will meet with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in Moscow.

The suspected ringleader of the Nov. 13 terror attacks in Paris took part in the assaults on a cafe and restaurant and visited the crime scenes later that night — even as police special forces stormed a concert venue where 89 people were slaughtered, Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins said Tuesday.
After the attacks unfolded, Abdelhamid Abaaoud traveled around central Paris, Molins said, citing cell phone tracking data, NBC News reported.
The data show that Abaaoud stopped near the locations where he and other gunmen and suicide bombers launched simultaneous assaults, killing 130 and injuring hundreds more, Molins said. That included the Bataclan, where gunmen and bombers attacked a sold-out concert by the American rock band Eagles of Death Metal.
Abaaoud also apparently spoke by cell phone with Bilal Hadfi before he blew himself up outside Stade de France along with two other suicide bombers, Molins said.
Abaaoud was killed during a police operation in the Saint-Denis neighborhood outside of Paris, on Wednesday, Nov. 18.
