US President Barack Obama has called on the world to unite to deal with the issue of terrorism and destroy Daesh (ISIL) in the aftermath of Tuesday's attacks in Brussels.

Speaking at a joint press conference with Argentine President Mauricio Macri on Wednesday, Obama said, “The world has to be united against terrorism.”

"We can and we will defeat those who threaten the safety and security not only of our own people but of those all around the world," he added.

The twin blasts at Brussels Airport and another at a metro station close to the European Union headquarters in the Belgian capital left at least 34 people dead and 250 others wounded. 

The Daesh Takfiri group, which was reportedly created and funded by the US and its regional allies to destabilize the Middle East region, particularly Syria, has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Daesh terrorists now control large parts of Iraq and Syria. They have been carrying out horrific acts of violence such as public decapitations and crucifixions against all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Izadi Kurds, and Christians, in the areas under their control.

Obama on Wednesday vowed to destroy Daesh in Iraq and Syria.

“We will also continue to go after ISIL aggressively until it is removed from Syria and removed from Iraq and is finally destroyed,” he said.
