PARIS, Nov 17 : Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday that the United States and its allies must intensify their offensive against the Islamic State in response to the terrorist attacks in Paris, promising that the militant group "will feel greater pressure" in the coming weeks.
"Everybody understands that with Lebanon's attacks, with what's happened in Egypt, with Ankara, Turkey and attacks in Paris, we have to step up our efforts to hit them at the core where they're planning these things, and also obviously to do more on borders in terms of the movement of people," Kerry said.
The secretary of state spoke after a meeting with President Fran?ois Hollande of France in Paris, where he said the two men discussed "significant steps" to be "more effective" against the Islamic State.
Kerry, who said the French leader would visit Washington next week to meet with President Obama, also spoke about ways of "increasing our efforts."     ?NYT
