ISIS was ousted by government forces from the western Iraqi city of Ramadi last month and has been slowly pushed back in other areas.

"The object of today is to satisfy ourselves that the balance of the campaign was right and that we can now capitalise on the setbacks Daesh had suffered in Iraq and move on to tighten the noose around the head of the snake in Syria in Raqqa," British Defence Secretary Michael Fallon told news agency before the meeting.
Daesh was the Arabic derogatory acronym to describe Islamic state. Fallon said the group had lost 25 percent of the area it controlled in Iraq and 10 percent in Syria.
