Bushati: Fighting ISIS is a global effort

In the past couple of weeks, a lot of our focus has been honed on the north Syrian city of Kobane. It's a Kurdish stronghold and on Wednesday Iraqi Kurdish forces were given permission to travel to the front lines in Kobane via Turkey.

But the Kurds are just one part of the larger international coalition against ISIS. Several nations have signed on, but their commitment varies greatly. Some countries have merely condemned the militants while others have gone so far as to conduct airstrikes.

Albania has sent military supplies to the Iraqi government and Kurdish forces. Becky spoke to Albanian Foreign Minister Ditmir Bushati to find out why his government joined the fight against a group operating mainly in Syria and Iraq.
