Anti-ISIS international coalition meets in Washington

Wed, 22.03.2017 17:02

Top officials from the 68-nation coalition fighting ISIS, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, are looking to increase pressure on the group as U.S.-backed forces move closer to retaking Mosul, Iraq.

They're meeting today to plan the next objective in the campaign: the extremists' self-declared capital in Syria.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is hosting Iraq's prime minister and top diplomats from the coalition partners in Washington. They'll discuss new ideas to expand the fight against ISIS and prepare for the aftermath of its defeat.

But they're unlikely to develop a new overall strategy. The Trump administration is still refining its anti-ISIS approach, which will include some increase in U.S. military involvement.
