Arlington, Virginia, Jumada I 1, 1437, Feb 10, 2016, SPA -- U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter met with Canadian National Defense Minister Harjit Sajjan at North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) headquarters in Brussels Wednesday, the Pentagon said.

"The two discussed the counter-Daash campaign, and the US secretary reinforced the United States' commitment to intensify the fight against Daash," Pentagon spokesperson Peter Cook said in a statement.

"He thanked the minister for Canada's announcement to triple their training mission in northern Iraq, double their intelligence effort, as well as expand their humanitarian and development contributions. The leaders also discussed how Canada will continue to contribute to the air campaign by conducting refueling and aerial surveillance operations," Cook said.
