Obama: NATO agrees on action against Islamic State

NEWPORT, Wales  — President Obama says NATO members unanimously agree on the need for immediate action against Islamic State militants because they pose a threat to members of the alliance.

Obama says the members agree that the Islamic State is a “savage organization” that must ultimately be destroyed.

Obama spoke today just before departing from a two-day NATO summit in Wales. The president has been pressing his counterparts there to join a coalition of nations that could go after the Islamic State group using military power, diplomatic pressure and economic penalties.

He says the international coalition needs to go beyond Western countries and include Sunni majority states to reject the kind of nihilism that the Islamic State projects.
