Arabs League Vows to Cooperate with International Efforts against ISIS

The 6th Ministerial Meeting of the China-Arab Cooperation Forum Is Held In Beijing

Arab League foreign ministers on Sunday agreed to do what I takes to stop the Islamic State forces, including cooperation with international efforts in the region, Reuters reported.

The Arab League endorsed last month’s UN Security Council resolution that called on member states to “act to suppress the flow of foreign fighters, financing and other support to Islamist extremist groups in Iraq and Syria.”

This resolution means the Arab League is endorsing recent U.S. aerial assaults on ISIS, at least tacitly, although the resolution did not directly endorse either the Iraqi or U.S. campaign against Islamic State. Nevertheless, diplomatic sources suggest the wording clearly offered Arab cooperation to the current and future U.S. and Iraqi efforts.

Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi told the session that the rise of ISIS in Iraq challenged not just the authority of the state but “its very existence and the existence of other states.” He called for a decisive resolution to confront terrorism militarily, politically, economically and culturally.

It’s about time. They should have started with the PLO in 1968, but who knew?

President Barack Obama declared last week that the United States was ready to “take out” leaders of Islamic State, and said NATO allies were prepared to join military action against what he called a major threat to the West.

On Sunday, U.S. warplanes struck at ISIS soldiers near Iraq’s Haditha Dam.

The Arab League statement, in a flash of real politics, also called for Syrian opposition groups to hold reconciliation talks with President Assad.

Better Assad than getting your head cut off, any time.
