Obama urges greater effort to halt foreign fighters entering Syria

US President Barack Obama (R) speaks during a bilateral meeting with Iraq's Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi on the sidelines of the G7 Summit in southern Germany on June 8, 2015Thousands of foreign jihadists are still flooding into Syria to fight, US President Barack Obama warned Monday, as he urged greater efforts to halt the flow, particularly through the porous Turkish border. “Not all of that is preventable, but a lot of it is preventable if we’ve got better cooperation, better coordination, better intelligence, if we are monitoring what’s happening at the Turkish-Syria border more effectively,” said Obama after meeting Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Germany. The United States is leading a coalition aimed at eliminating Islamic State jihadists in Iraq that has unleashed 4,000 air strikes on IS positions, helping Baghdad to drive the jihadists out of some of their strongholds.
