US President Barack Obama said Sunday he would go ahead with a visit to Paris for a pivotal UN summit on climate change despite the recent attacks in the French capital, urging other leaders to do the same to show “we are not afraid” of extremists.

“I think it’s absolutely vital for every country, every leader, to send a signal that the viciousness of a handful of killers does not stop the world from doing vital business,” Obama said following an Asia-Pacific summit in Malaysia, AFP reported. In addition to hunting down terrorists, missile strikes, curbing militants financing and other steps, “the most powerful tool we have to fight IS is to say that we’re not afraid”.
