The United States has not asked Finland to participate in actual military operations against the Islamic State (ISIS). President Sauli Niinistö revealed on Wednesday that Finland is looking carefully into how it could respond to the request for assistance in the fight against ISIS it received from the United States on Tuesday.

The contents of the request have yet to be made public, with officials confirming only that Finland is likely to continue training local forces in Iraq. “The request doesn't deal with actual combat duties,” said Timo Kantola, a deputy director general at the Political Department of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
