U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter welcomed Thursday a Saudi offer to participate in any ground operations in Syria launched by the U.S.-led coalition.Carter said increased activity by other countries would make it easier for the United States to accelerate its fight against ISIS militants. For instance, Saudi officials had said they would help marshal some Muslim countries to join in the fight, and to ensure that Iraqi and Syrian populations were able to prevent a reemergence of the military group later, Carter said.Carter said he planned to use next week's meetings in Brussels to help encourage more broad-based support for accelerating the fight against ISIS.
