His Eminence stressed the importance of uniting the efforts to do away with the terrorist ISIS gangs, and said the United States must play a more effective role in exterminating terrorism, asking for justifications for the media releases claiming that the United States throws aids from aircrafts on areas controlled by ISIS.
His Eminence discussed with Mr. Austin the security situation in the region and the events in Libya, Yemen and Bahrain.
    For his part, Mr. Austin denied any contact between the US forces and ISIS or any aids delivered by the US aircrafts to ISIS, saying there is no other solution but to destroy with ISIS.
