“Canada is proud of its contribution to the Global Coalition against Daesh, including military assistance and support for stability in the region. As Daesh’s territorial hold recedes, it is even more important for members of the coalition to meet and discuss how to ensure Daesh’s defeat is total and enduring. We must also make certain that those responsible for its atrocities are held to account.”
