Kerry added, “An international coalition is pushing back Islamic State militants in their Syrian and Iraqi strongholds, but the group is threatening Libya and could seize the nation’s oil wealth,” pointing out that, “New agreement to be concluded in order to form a new national unity government in Libya to prevent the possibility of the occurrence of this scenario.”

“We are still not at the victory that we want to achieve, and will achieve, in either Syria or Iraq and we have seen ISIS playing a game of metastasizing out to other countries, particularly Libya,” Kerry continued.
