The Heat: G-20 leaders launch anti-ISIL plan

The Heat

TH3

From G-20 to APEC, global leaders are grappling with the threat of terrorism.

Last Friday’s deadly Paris attacks are dominating the agenda at global summits, from the recently concluded G-20 meeting in Turkey to the APEC summit in the Philippines. One group took center stage: The Islamic State.

The gathering of the world’s 20 major economies was supposed to focus on global economic concerns, but the Paris attacks changed that narrative with G-20 leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin and his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama, discussing a unified strategy against ISIL.

From the downing of a Russian airliner to the killing spree in Paris, the terrorist group has carried out attacks on three continents so far.

The Heat was joined by a panel of guests to discuss the rise of Islamic State, and the shaping the global narrative on terrorism:

  • Pepe Escobar is a correspondent for Asia Times.
  • Philippe Du Fresnay is an economist.
  • Liu Youfa is the former Vice President of the China Institute of International Studies.
  • Yenal Kucuker is the senior Turkey Expert at the Turkish Heritage Organization.
