U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was at the center of a major strategy conference of 68 members of the international coalition to defeat the Islamic State. Tillerson made clear the coalition's fight against IS would be a top priority under the Trump administration, but asked other countries to contribute more to stabilization efforts once IS fighters have been expelled from Iraq and Syria. VOA's Cindy Saine reports from the State Department.
