mentioned earlier, we are awaiting that press conference at the white house between president obama and the visiting frenchpresident -- president françois hollande. we will bring it to you live here on bloomberg television. back to you. to minutesll be back from now. stocks from around the world took a hit after turkey said it shot down that russian warplanes. russian stocks falling the most, 3%. u.s. and european stocks dropped .s well the s&p 500 down a quarter of a percentage point. mark barton is in london with the latest chart. and ambassador burns at the kennedy school. falloutdetails from the of the shooting down of that russian jet. that should not surprise anybody. but the language from vladimir putin was expressly strong.
determining this a stab in the back. what does this tell you about how the russians are going to handle the situation in the weeks ahead? the russians are probably -- they are not transparent, not open with their public. they have been trying to convince the public that their air operations were going perfectly well. they denied any civilian casualties. oroubt they would be open tell the truth about what happened. they obviously have to, for domestic reasons, react in a very tough-minded way which he did. everything is going to depend on whether the terms can convince the world community that the russian plane did actually entered turkish airspace. that is a case -- erik: how long will that take? >> it will not be that difficult, because obviously they are tracking their own writers prevail to have video, or radar to establish the positions of those airplanes.
theturkish airplane and russian airplane. if they can do that with the states and united the other nato countries will have to defend turkey with the right to defend their airspace and sovereignty. warned the russians not to cross the border which they have been doing on several occasions. it is obviously in the interest of everyone not to see a repetition of this, and not to see an escalation of the conflict. behind the scenes i would think the united states would be acting to encourage the turks and russians to de-conflict --ir operations and have to transparency so that this type of thing does not happen in the future. erik: what country can play the most meaningful role to come -- keeps us from escalating? the united states is a nato ally of turkey and we
are in communications with the russians, we are well placed to do that, to make a point to president putin that he needs to control his air force at them out of the territory of the countries. openness ande time transparency, where the militaries are talking with each , tor, among each other prevent this type of incident, nobody wants to see an escalation. it is dangerous and it does weaken the fight against islamic state. president francois hollande could play a role. hurts andally complicates things for president ollanta because he is here with the full support of his public to see a stronger international response against islamic state. he wants the united states to step up, he wants the russians to redirect their airpower from the syrian and sunni targets and turned to islamic state. what he got today in the big

news at bloomberg.com. president obama and president françois hollande will hold a joint news conference in the white house.the we haven't from all angles -- have it from all angles. mark: thank you. this press conference comes as we know on the heels of those attacks. parents on edge, france in a state of emergency. the state of emergency also in belgium because they are looking for one of the suspects they believed help carry out and even plan these terror attacks. we have been covering the story since the very beginning. we expecting from the french president other than his call for an international
anti-terror coalition? part ofurse the tricky his visit in the united states is going to be to gauge the willingness of the barack obama against islamic state in syria. morea has been showing support to the french. the french aircraft area terms legault arrived in the region on monday. it is ready to try the islamic state in syria. russia has supported the french processes in the region. france is the only western country with the united states to directly target the islamic date in syria. the death of a call today will be for president all launched to -- theact as a bridge
difficulty for president francois hollande will be to try to act as a bridge between united states and russia. this will not change any time soon. kevin, the complication was the news that we heard today, that turkey, a nato country, has shot down a russian warplane that the turks claimed had strayed too far in their air strays -- airspace. the pilots ignored repeated warnings. how will this complicate what president aland is hoping for, an alliance? is not an ideal situation to act as the backdrop for the press conference that we are about to his he just moments away from -- just moments from now. that being said i think that president obama is going to reenter rate largely eighth embolic measure of support. he has not committed to providing u.s. troops on the ground and he quite frankly deal
from a policy standpoint that the european counterparts can be doing more with each other to share in formation about these threats. mark: has that been a problem in the past where european allies of the united states, particularly france, germany, and others feel that there has been some sort of too much red tape trying to get intelligence on islamic state and other terror groups from the united states? concernurse the big with these paris attacks 11 days ago is the failure of intelligence sharing. intelligence sharing not only within the countries in the european union but also with the united states and russia. --can probably expect some from president obama that he will try to increase intelligence sharing with rents
-- with france. cap, the sharing of intelligence at this point, what is the united states prepared to in an effort to lead the fight against islamic state? from an intelligent standpoint, from a military standpoint, and the criticism that has been leveled at president obama and the administration. he called them a jv team, but that tone seems to have changed. >> to answer the second part of your question first, clearly the events in the paris attack have completely been pushed to the forefront of the presidential campaign. republican presidential candidates really hammering away at the administration's response, and to some point largelyclinton distancing herself from the president on his strategy with isis.
the american people are growing with -- increasingly frustrated with the president's strategy. it includes increasing the military presence of parts of this broader coalition, increasing the number of airstrikes, increasing the number of special forces. however again there has been widespread criticism about his lack of communicating the strategy not only to the europeans to the american public quite frankly are pretty concerned heading into the holiday weekend when the state department has issued a warning for those traveling with thanksgiving holiday. mark: r bloomberg reporters at the white house and paris, they are going to stay with us. we're going to take a commercial break. we will have full coverage of conference. you're watching bloomberg television. we will be right back. ♪
