Kerry hosts coalition meeting aiming to counter IS

Secretary of State John Kerry welcomed to the State Department senior diplomats from nearly 60 nations, including more than 35 Washington-based ambassadors from partner countries in the international coalition against ISIL.
Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL John Allen and other senior US officials briefed the meeting on “the progress across the coalition’s five lines of effort to counter ISIL; supporting regional military partners, stopping the flow of foreign fighters, cutting off ISIL’s access to financing, addressing urgent humanitarian needs, and countering ISIL’s messaging,” noted a State Department release.
This was the second plenary session in Washington that built on the December 3 Coalition Ministerial in Brussels and the January 22 Small Group meeting in London.
