US asks Finland for assistance in fight against ISIS

The United States has presented Finland with a request for assistance in its fight against the Islamic State (ISIS). “The request includes both detailed and general items. It identifies a number of different possibilities,” Timo Kantola, a deputy director general at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, reveals in an interview with Helsingin Sanomat.

Ilta-Sanomat reported about the request for assistance already on Tuesday.

The assistance in question is related especially to the operations of the anti-ISIS coalition in Iraq and Syria but not limited to military activities. Kantola refrained on Tuesday both from shedding further light on the details of the request and from speculating on when such details would be made public.
