2:00 am
take a listen. russia is strongly denying that claim. putting forward the rescued pilot. he told reporters, there were no warnings, not via the radio or visually. for the latest, let's bring in cnn's ian lee live in istanbul. ian, you have russia promising not to go to war over the downed fighter jet, but going after an area in syria where there are the turkey-backed rebels. what is russia's end game in all this? >> reporter: it really seems like, alison, that russia is going to punish turkey on their interests inside syria. this area in syria has ethnic turkman. this has been a sense an area which is sensitive for the
2:01 am
turks. russia said they were bombing an isis target there. that was very disengenious. you have the tense situation. you also have russia with the very advanced surface-to-air missiles with the range of 250 miles. latakia air base and the downing of the plane is only 50 miles. they are sending fighter jets to ensure the situation. very intense situation. >> ian, it is akin to the military response by russia. russia sending a non-military response. strengthening controls on goods from turkey. is this a good idea? this will escalate it one more notch. >> reporter: that is right. these are punitive measures by
2:02 am
russia from turkey. you have to look at it. russia is their second largest trade partner. turkey is 60% of the natural gas from russia. any measures puts a squeeze on turkey. i was on the street yesterday talking to people. they said this is what worries them most. especially with it being winter. they don't want to see their gas reduced or cut off. russia is advising their people not to come to turkey as tourists. russia sending a couple million tourists to turkey every year. this is hitting turkey in the pocketbook as well. >> russia playing a dangerous game. ian lee, thank you. the angry words are russia and turkey come as vladimir putin and president francois hollande meet this morning. hollande will try to persuade putin to go all-in on the fight against isis. the downing of the russian jet

2:04 am
obama said he will not work with russia as long as russia is attacking non-isis targets in syria. that is where president hollande will focus the efforts today. speak to president putin and if there is any way to work it so you are only striking isis targets. then we can get all of the coalitions working together. it is a tough call. french officials here are playing down any sort of expectation of progress today. it is a bit complicated by the shooting down of the russia plane. >> max, it has been almost two weeks since the attacks in paris. there are two on the run. anything new on the search for them? >> reporter: there really isn't. we don't know where these two men on the run are. the longer it is, the more countries getting involved. frightening to think they are still out there. they must be hidden by someone.
2:05 am
the french investigators are going into the deep background of the individuals. they discovered the driver involved, driving the attackers around. they don't know how he got back. they are trying to track that. it shows six of the paris attackers or those involved went to syria and got some sort of training. just shows what they are dealing with here. they >> max foster, thank you. with the terror threat keeping the world on edge, president obama is trying to reassure travelers that the u.s. government is taking every possible step to keep the country safe ahead of the busy holiday weekend. cnn's joe johns has the latest from the white house. >> reporter: alison and boris,

acknowledging the paris attacks, the president and the united states gathering together a meeting of the national security advisors. attorney general and secretary of homeland security and meeting with reporters to talk about security. trying to reassure the public, there is no specific or credible threat to the united states. listen. >> so the bottom line is this, i want the american people to know entering the holidays that the combined resources of our military, our intelligence and homeland security agencies are on the case. they are vigilant and effective. in the event of specific credible threat, the public will be informed. we do think it is usual for people to be vigilant.
2:07 am
if you see anything suspicious, say something. >> reporter: this is the message the white house is pushing hard. there is no evidence of a credible threat against the united states homeland, there have been several other terrorist attacks recently besides paris. including beirut, egypt and f tunis tunisia. terrorists have been busy lately. alison and boris. the federal government warning state officials nationwide cannot block the settlements of syrian refugees. ordering them not to deny benefits and services based on religion or country of origin. the letter warns states not complying could be forced to action. some do not plan to participate. now to a stirring admission.

i'm alison kosik. >> i'm boris sanchez. new issues after the russia jet plane was downed on tuesday. syria describing it as a retaliatory bombing. russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov said it was no accident downing the plane. turkey is backing up the claim that the russian pilots were warned. >> this is turkish air force speaking. you are approaching turkish air space. >> russia denying that claim. they put forward the rescued pilot. he told reporters no warnings, not radio or visually. let's bring in the latest with cnn's ian lee. russia is not responding to the
2:32 am
reporting. what do they say? >> reporter: we are waiting for them to get their response. turkey is saying they broadcasted that message ten times over the course of five minutes. today, we are watching that situation on the ground and that region in the northwestern part of syria closely. the forces of syrian president bashar al assad has launched an offensive in that area. we hear heavy artillery and heavy mortar fire against the turkmen. this is an area sensitive. the turkmen have a close relationship as described by the turkish president. there is ongoing fighting there right now. talking to analysts, they believe this is to be expected. russia would go after turkish interests inside syria going after rebel groups that backed by turkey to send a message
2:33 am
about taking down one of their planes. >> ian, i heard reports from turkish media they targeted turkish aid vehicles in syria. have we been able to confirm that independently? >> reporter: we are hearing from one of the aid groups that stated their vehicles were not targeted. this happened across the border from turkey inside syria. we are told the aid vehicles were empty at the time or majority of them were empty. this is an area where aid goes to a lot of the people who desperately need it inside syria. we're hearing reports at least seven people were killed in the attack. >> ian lee monitoring a delicate situation. ian, thank you. the angry words with russia and turkey come as russian president vladimir putin and french president francois

2:35 am
washington and president obama who fundamentally disagrees with president putin's view of president assad. president hollande feels there could be some coordination at least on the ground. president obama accusing the russians are not just targeting isis in syria, but targeting other forces as well. if they can only target isis, perhaps there is some way of americans and russians working together. but not under the current conditions. that is perhaps where president hollande will focus on the isis positions only in syria. because of the fact one of the planes was shot down, russia will be more determined to carry out strategy in syria. if that goes beyond isis, this is not the time putin is ready to compromise. >> max, you are aware the terror
2:36 am
threat is still high. can you give us the latest on the manhunt for the several terrorists? >> reporter: we have not heard anything for a couple days. two men still on the run. what they are trying to do here is dig deep into the pasts and get deep investigation work done finding out about the movements in the months and years before the paris attacks. we know one of the drivers in the attacks had gone to syria in 2014. we don't know how he got back. this is a problem, alison, that is what president hollande wants to resolve. countries in europe are not sharing enough information. they are not managing to track individuals even if they come up on the radar. that is what the president is pushing. he just met with the prime minister. that is the effort he is pushing there. >> max foster live in paris. thank you. with the terror threat keeping the world on edge, president obama trying to reassure travelers the u.s.
