Australia's role for military action against IS will last for years: Minister Bishop
Sept.10, Sydney: Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has said that her country’s role in the fight against so-called Islamic State (IS) in the Middle East could last for years.
The remarks came after the Australian government said its aircraft would participate in missions against IS in Syria. She told local media that Australia was committed to destroying the militant group.
She said, “We've always spoken about our involvement in Iraq in terms of years, not months or days."
Earlier, its jets were only flying missions against the militant group in Iraq as part of the US-led coalition.
Australia has also sent soldiers to help train and advise Iraq's army.
