Syria stands with a global effort to combat Islamic State, Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem said on Monday, in a statement to the United Nations that appeared to give tacit approval of U.S. and Arab airstrikes in Syria targeting the militants.

"The Syrian Arab Republic reiterates that it stands with any international effort aimed at fighting and combating terrorism, and stresses that this must be done in full respect of the lives of innocent civilians and within the frame of full respect of national sovereignty, and in conformity with international conventions," Moualem told the United Nations General Assembly.

He did not specifically condemn the airstrikes, but warned that taking military action while some countries continue to support the militants being targeted could create a situation in which "the international community will not exit in decades."
