Obama: Over 40 Countries Have Offered To Help the Broad Campaign Against ISIL’

‘This isn’t America vs. ISIL ... It’s the world vs ISIL’

Weekly Address: The World Is United in the Fight Against ISIL (The White House)

In this week’s address, the President thanked Congress for its strong bipartisan support for efforts to train and equip Syrian opposition forces to fight ISIL. This plan is part of the President’s comprehensive counter-terrorism strategy to degrade and destroy the terrorist group, and does not commit our troops to fighting another ground war. America, working with a broad coalition of nations, will continue to train, equip, advise, and assist our partners in the region in the battle against ISIL.

In the coming week, the President will speak at the United Nations General Assembly and continue to lead the world against terror, a fight in which all countries have a stake.
