U.S. President Barack Obama convened White House National Security Council to review the latest intelligence surrounding the attacks in Paris before departing for the G-20 Summit in Turkey.

Briefing the president on the Paris serial attacks that claimed 129 lives, his national security team noted to Obama that there was "no specific or credible threat to the United States".

"The President received a briefing on the active cooperation with our French counterparts on intelligence sharing and military action against ISIL," a White House statement said. "The team reviewed the intelligence picture, noting that we had no information to contradict the initial French assessment of ISIL's responsibility."

According to the White House, Obama directed his team to tighten security measures in U.S. embassies across Europe.
