French President Francois Hollande arrived in Washington this morning and held a joint press conference with President Barack Obama, just over a week after Paris suffered a series of terrorist attacks that left 130 civilians dead.

Hollande is embarking on a tour of meetings this week. He hosted British Prime Minister David Cameron yesterday and will have met with German, Italian, Chinese and Canadian leaders by the end of the week.

NPR congressional reporter Susan Davis joins Here & Now’s Indira Lakshmanan to discuss what Hollande and Obama said in the news conference, and what results Hollande is seeking from these international meetings.
