A couple of days after the Paris attacks there was plenty of tough talk from world leaders at the G20 summit of the need for retribution, but Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau did his best to avoid being part of the discussion.

U.S. President Barack Obama was at the forefront of the charge at the G20 Summit in Anyala, Turkey, pushing for coalition forces to be vigilant in the ongoing battle with the Islamic State.

“The skies have been darkened by the horrific attacks that took place in Paris,” Obama said.

The American leader also said, “we will redouble our efforts along with other members of the coalition to bring about a peaceful transition in Syria.”

Obama wasn’t alone as United Nations leader Ban Ki-Moon also spoke of the need for coalition forced to respond to the latest attacks from the Islamic State.

“Our response needs to be robust but always within the rule of law,” he said.

Trudeau stayed away from the tough talk at the summit. The Canadian leader is still planning to withdraw Canadian CF-18 fighter jets from Syria.

When Trudeau spoke with a room full of business leaders he avoided the topic, instead, speaking about infrastructure investment. Later during a working lunch, he pushed world leaders to address climate change.

Trudeau finally spoke on the issue during a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

“Obviously it’s a topic that we are engaging in with the other leaders as well to ensure continued safety for our citizens,” Trudeau said.
