At the G20 summit in China which begins on Sunday, President Barack Obama is turning attention to the ISIS, consulting with the leaders of Turkey and Britain, important allies with their own challenges at home.
Obama has not met with Turkey’s prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, since a coup nearly toppled Erdogan’s government in July. The attempted overthrow has led to accusations of US involvement, and those tensions have been aggravated by growing clashes between Turkish forces and US -backed Syrian Kurds.
Also on Obama’s schedule on Sunday was a first meeting with Theresa May, the new British prime minister who is managing her country’s exit from the European Union after the leave side won a referendum.
Obama arrived on Saturday in Hangzhou, for the economic summit. On probably his final visit to Asia as president, he was quick to underscore what he views as a success in an otherwise rocky relationship with his Chinese hosts.
