MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to De Telegraaf, Koenders said Thursday in his country's parliament that Washington had made a request to the Netherlands to intensify its anti-Daesh efforts in Syria last week.

Koenders said that the request would be taken into consideration "very seriously" and added that "new prospects" for joining the fight had been opened.

The Netherlands is currently participating in operations against the terrorist group, outlawed in many countries, including Russia and the United States. Four Dutch F-16 aircraft are in Iraq contributing to US-led coalition airstrikes against Daesh positions.
