Calling Ebola crisis an issue of global security, U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday urged further efforts from international community to fight the deadly virus in West Africa.

After meeting his national security aides, Mr. Obama said at a White House press conference that the U.S. was “making progress” at containing the disease in West Africa, but other countries need to “step up” and could not remain on the sidelines, Xinhua reported.

“We have not seen other countries step up as aggressively as we need them to,” Mr. Obama said a week after the first U.S. case of Ebola surfaced in Dallas.

The President pledged more “pressure” on foreign leaders to “make sure that they are doing everything that they can to join us in this effort”.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
