While a more defined course of action in Syria is still coming together, I can say the United States will increase our pressure on ISIS and Al-Qaeda. And we'll work to establish interim zones of stability through ceasefires to allow refugees to go home. As a coalition, we are not in the business of nation building or reconstruction.
We must ensure that our respective nation's precious and limited resources are devoted to preventing the resurgence of ISIS. And equipping the war-torn communities to take the lead in rebuilding their institutions and returning to stability.
