US Special Representative for Syria Jim Jeffrey on Thursday November 14th said that the member states of the global coalition fighting Isis shared different opinions concerning taking back their citizens who were detained on terrorism charges, Reuters reported.

This comes after Pompeo, during a meeting with foreign ministers of the states that are part of the coalition in Washington D.C., asked the member states to repatriate their jihadi detainees.

"There was some difference of opinion on whether they should be repatriated or whether that should be something that countries are still going to look at and think about in more detail,” Jeffrey said, considering the issue as “significant problem."
