The United States’ ambassador to the United Nations said on Saturday that other nations are pledging support for the American-led effort to destroy the terror group Islamic State.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that more than 140 heads of state or government are going to attend the assembly’s annual “general debate”, which begins on Wednesday and ends Sept. 30.
Islamic State militants are blamed for a wave of sectarian violence, beheadings and massacres of civilians.
Samantha Power, U.S. Ambassador has assured of the support of more than 40 countries. She refused to disclose the names or the extent of their support.
“It’s up to the individual country,” Ambassador Samantha Power told.
Islamic State, the term is composed of two words: “Islam” and” State.” The Islamic State would not allow any concept or idea emanating from a source other than Islam. A thorough examination of the scripture and Hadith literature shows that there is no such concept of Islamic state. Qur’an is concerned about the concept of a society rather than a state.
The terror group Islamic State, previously calling itself the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), grew significantly under the guidance of Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, is an unrecognized state and a Sunni jihadist group active in Iraq and Syria in the Middle East. The group aims to establish an Islamic caliphate, or state, stretching across the region.
Last week France joined hands with the United States in airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Iraq. Saudi Arabia has offered to aid in training moderate anti-Islamic State group fighters on Saudi soil.
President Barack Obama is heading to New York to lead some sessions.
The involvement of Turkey and such Arab States as Egypt and Qatar is questionable. The others in the pending list is Syria.
Turkey, that borders areas controlled by ISIS jihadists in Syria and Iraq, possess the 2nd-largest army in NATO and is the home for the U.S. Air Force base Incirlik.
U.S. faced criticism from Russia, Syria’s top international ally, as it forced that airstrikes on Syria must be coordinated with Damascus and Tehran. Last Week Russia’s Foreign Ministry said that any U.S. action would need U.N. Security Council approval.
Officially, Turkey maintained low-profile in its operations in an attempt to save the life of 49 of its citizens held hostage by ISIS, that tied the hand of Turkey. However, the hostages were released Saturday.
Power removed the question of the U.S. sharing intelligence with Iran. It also won’t join the rogue country in a combat effort.
