Now he’s lecturing ISIS…
On Tuesday, John Kerry lectured ISIS on appropriate 21st century behavior.
Russia and the United States have agreed to step up intelligence sharing about Islamic State group despite stark differences over the Ukraine crisis.
After more than three hours of talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Paris on Tuesday the US Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters that Washington and Moscow both recognize that Islamic State “has absolutely no place in the 21st century.”
“No decent country by any definition can support the horrors that are perpetrated” by Islamic State militants, Kerry said. “And no civilized country should shirk its responsibility to stand up and be part of the effort to stamp out this disease.”
Kerry added he suggested to Lavrov that the two sides “intensify intelligence cooperation” with respect to Islamic State fighters who have taken over large parts of Iraq and Syria and other counter-terrorism challenges of the region “and we agreed to do so.”
He also said Russia has agreed to ‘explore’ whether to increase its role in providing arms and military equipment to the Iraqi forces battling Islamic State, as well as training and advising them.
