you're a stronger coalition going forward there is no one size fits all approach to permanently defeating isis's influence across the globe our coalition is addressing the threat in each region and what is required from us to beat those threats we view our next steps through a whole of government lens ensuring that we will apply the right set of tools to address each situation. is life force in munich so jim out this is an annual security conference that takes place there in germany and the u.s. representatives one of them we just heard from there have been making the case for continuing the battle against i so want to some of the other issues that are dominating discussions there. well as you mentioned the house of this annual event is focused as a title obviously on security but more importantly of the security of let's say
3:01 am
rests the liberal democracies or systems let's see it is a gathering of those main powers in the western hemisphere that want to maintain that's as good as there are lies from other regions around the world this year they have been talking a lot actually about the perceived threats as far as they're concerned coming from russia and china saying that there was a need to come but that's enough was probably one of the most significant threats to the west and liberal systems that's existed to date that they are added to the reassurances that the u.s. administration has been trying to give to its allies with regards to the fight against iceland similar groups and that if it were to eventually withdraw from syria though that may not have the large impact will not fight against them as some . who are critical of such a possible will draw were would have it's important also to note that there have been some releases of reports by non-governmental organizations which of coincided with this significance gathering so for example you have save the children which
