President Barack Obama met with the French President François Hollande on the Paris attacks, and focused in part on Russia's strategy in the region.

FOX News' Jon Decker reports from the White House:

President Obama told President Hollande that America stands solidly with France in the wake of the deadly terrorist attack in Paris.

The two leaders were also on the same page in terms of allowing Russia to join the U.S.-led coalition aimed at defeating ISIS...

(President Obama) "We've got a coalition of 65 countries who've been active in pushing back against ISIL for quite some time."

President Obama and Hollande made it clear that Russia would not be involved in coordinating counterattacks against ISIS as long as President Putin continues to back Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
