The project of US President Donald Trump the fight with the "Islamic state" does not differ much from the plan of his predecessor, former US President Barack Obama. This is reported by NBC with reference to two high-ranking officials who familiarized themselves with the document.
The project assumes continuation of bombing of insurgents' positions by the coalition forces led by the USA, an escalating support to local forces that those could return control on Mosul and Rakka. The plan also proposes to deprive ISIS of financial sources and reach a stable situation in the territories reclaimed from the militants.
The plan that was provided to Trump by Pentagon is little more than "strengthening" such slow and gradual steps in the fight against terrorists, "for which Trump scoffed at the Obama administration," NBC reporters say.
Earlier US President Donald Trump assured German Chancellor Angela Merkel of Washington’s commitment to NATO. Trump said this during joint press conference with Merkel in White House.
