Raymond Thomas, commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command, has said transregional cooperation between special operations forces worldwide is key in efforts to defeat militant groups such as the Islamic State organization, Defense News reported Monday.

Thomas told an audience at the Middle Eastern Special Operations Commanders Conference that USSOCOM looks to build on partnerships with Nigeria, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and Indonesia to support efforts against the IS group, Jen Judson wrote.

“The axiom that it takes a network to defeat a network logically drives the corollary that it takes a transregional network to defeat a similar foe,” said Thomas.

He added the formation of special operations force networks requires coordination between military, law enforcement groups and the international community, Judson quoted.
