Kerry says comfortable U.S. will form broad anti-ISIL coalition

Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday he was comfortable that the United States would form a broad-based coalition to fight Islamic State militants but said it would not be appropriate for Iran to be involved in the efforts. Kerry has been touring the Middle East to build support for President Barack Obama’s plan, announced on Wednesday, to strike both sides of the Syrian-Iraqi frontier to defeat Islamic State Sunni fighters that control swathes of both countries. “I’m comfortable that this will be a broad-based coalition with Arab nations, European nations, the United States, others,” Kerry said, speaking in Ankara after meeting Turkish leaders. He said France had publicly made clear its willingness to take action in Iraq and to use force but said it was too soon to say what role individual nations would play.
