Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL General John Allen and Deputy Special Presidential Envoy Brett McGurk will travel to Brussels, Belgium for a meeting with key members of the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL on November 4. This meeting will be at the political director-level and will be an opportunity for General Allen to discuss current priorities with the Coalition and review Coalition operations and progress in line with the counter-ISIL strategy in Iraq and Syria. This is one of a series of Coalition meetings, the last of which took place in September on the margins of UNGA in New York as part of the larger C-ISIL/CVE Summit hosted by President Obama.
