BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 P.M.) – US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson addressed representatives of the coalition fighting the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIL/ISIS) in Kuwait city on Tuesday, warning that “the fight is not over”
While Tillerson acknowledged that the coalition had made “outstanding progress,” he cautioned that “the enduring defeat of ISIS in Iraq and Syria means all members of the coalition must support and sustain the post-ISIS stabilisation efforts.
This means continuing to provide essential aid and services to communities which are only now starting to rebuild.”
In addition, Tillerson also spoke about the situation in Afrin, namely Turkey’s Operation Olive Branch, and claimed it “has detracted from our fight to defeat Isis in eastern Syria” and Tillerson will be visiting Turkey later in the week to discuss the issue.
