The meeting of the Global Coalition to counter ISIS in Washington on March 22 focused mainly on the liberation and stabilisation of Iraq's Mosul and Syria's Raqqa. Along with foreign ministers of the coalition members, the meeting was also attended by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who stressed that NATO countries can do even more.

Out of Visegrad countries (V4), the Czech Republic actively contributes to the fight against ISIL – selling 12 L-159 fighter jets to the Iraqi army in 2016, providing training staff for Iraqi pilots, delivering ammunition and providing humanitarian aid. The L-159 fighter jets were already used during the battle for Mosul. Out of the remaining V4 states, Poland is the most active, deploying four F-16 fighters to Iraq, while Slovak and Hungarian contributions remained limited to humanitarian aid and ammunition. NATO states’ contributions and their possible increase will be discussed at the NATO summit in May, according to Stoltenberg.
