(Iraq Now News)- James Jeffrey, the State Department‘s special representative to Syria, told the Sixth Annual Defense One Summit Thursday that direct military action would not be enough to defeat Iran and its expanding network of armed allies, many of which were comprised of Shiite militias.The diplomat argued that in such countries "it requires stability ops to break Iran‘s meddling influence,” Defense One reported.

Jeffrey cautioned that Iran "will create a new Daesh if we don‘t get at the underlying problem," referring to an Arabic acronym for ISIS. In tackling Iran, he said, "We have no better partner" than Saudi Arabia.

He added, "We couldn‘t be doing what we‘re doing in the region without them."He spoke at a panel at the Defense One Summit, which brings top military, foreign policy and intelligence leaders to Washington to discuss American security throughout the world.
