President Barack Obama needs to create a new strategy that can defeat the Islamic State, US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce said in a statement following Obama’s meeting with French President Francois Hollande at the Whiter House.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Royce also noted that the US armed forces should establish safe zones in Syria, arm already existing ground forces fighting the Islamic State, including the Kurds Peshmerga, and give US Air Force pilots more authority and flexibility to carry out missions.

"I’m glad to see President Obama standing shoulder to shoulder with President Hollande, but what we need from the White House right now is a real plan and commitment to defeat these brutal terrorists," Royce stated on Tuesday.

France has continued to count on America’s leadership, Royce maintained, and remains one of the closest US partners in fighting terror.

"Instead of doubling down on the same failed policies that allowed for ISIS’s [Islamic State’s] rise, the Obama administration ought to be laying out the broad, overarching strategy needed to win," he said.
