Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Sheikh Khaled Al-Jarrah Al-Sabah reaffirmed Kuwait's supportive stance to international efforts to counter the so-called Islamic State (IS) militant group.

"Kuwait strongly supports all international efforts and measures to defeat and eradicate terrorist organizations on all levels," said Sheikh Khaled Al-Jarrah, who headed Kuwait's delegation to the meetings of the defense ministers of the anti-IS coalition states held Wednesday in Andrews Airbase in the US state of Maryland.

Sheikh Khaled Al-Jarrah will also head Kuwait's delegation to a joint meeting of the defense and foreign ministers of the anti-Is coalition states on Thursday at the US Department of State headquarters to coordinate military and diplomatic efforts to counter IS.

The anti-IS meeting today tackled progress in military operations to date, the essential next steps in the campaign and how the coalition can accelerate the drive to deal IS a lasting defeat.
During the meeting, the conferees recommitted themselves to the objectives of the military campaign to eradicate the militant group and restore stability in the region.

They agreed on expanding their cooperation and contributions to the military operations against the group.
Some 27 nations plus NATO partook in the second meeting of defense ministers of contributing nations to the counter-IS coalition.
