WASHINGTON, January 29. /TASS/. US President Barack Obama convened his National Security Council on Thursday and reiterated his country’s drive to fight against ISIL terrorist organization around the globe, the White House announced in its statement.
"The President was briefed on ways we and our partners in the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL continue to accelerate and integrate the military campaign and diplomatic efforts on all possible fronts, including working with international partners to counter ISIL’s stated goal of expansion beyond Iraq and Syria," the statement said.
The US president pointed out to the fact that militants from the Islamic States terrorist organization as well as other terrorists were attempting to spread their influence and "find safe haven in areas with limited or poor governance."
"President directed his national security team to continue efforts to strengthen governance and support ongoing counterterrorism efforts in Libya and other countries where ISIL has sought to establish a presence," the statement said.
Obama also "emphasized that the United States will continue to counter ISIL terrorist plotters in any country where it is necessary," according to the statement from the White House.
