As part of the Global Coalition, Finland participates in Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) by providing security sector training in northern Iraq.

Finland is also an active member of the Coalition working group on Foreign Terrorist Fighters.

Defeating ISIL requires a long-term and comprehensive approach as laid out in the Coalition's five lines of effort. Finland is fully committed to give her contribution to this end.
