Iraq - Excerpt from the daily press briefing

Iraq (Q&A - Excerpt from the daily press briefing - September 11, 2014)

Our position is constant. Laurent Fabuis has reaffirmed on several occasions that “Daesh” poses a global threat to peace and security.

We actively support the Iraqi authorities in their fight against this terrorist group. As such, we have delivered military equipment to the Kurdistan region, with the agreement of the Iraqi authorities, in order to improve defense capabilities against “Daesh.”

In order to better respond to this threat, President Hollande announced that an international conference on peace and security in Iraq would be held in Paris on September 15 in order to take action in a more effective and coordinated manner, and Mr. Laurent Fabius indicated yesterday that we would participate “if necessary, in military air operations.”
