Welcomes coalition

6 Sep, 2014

Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari says Barack Obama’s announcement on a ‘core coalition’ to fight ISIS is a strong response to appeals by Iraq’s government for aid:

We welcome that, and we have repeatedly called on our international partners for help and support because this threat is a very deadly threat… not only to the people of Iraq or the region, but to Europe, to America, to NATO. This is basically our fight… but we need the support — our capacity is limited, and we need the support to enhance our capacity.
