Saudi-led anti-militant coalition in line with U.S. views - State Department

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Saudi-led 34-state Islamic military coalition against militants such as Islamic State is in line with what the United States has been saying its allies in the region should do, State Department spokesman John Kirby said on Tuesday.

He told reporters the United States needed to “learn a little bit more” about the coalition announced by Saudi Arabia, but added it welcomed any intensification of the effort against Islamic State.
