KRG Seeks Help Against IS

Iraq’s Kurdistan Regional Government called for Iran’s help in dealing with the rising threat of poison gas attacks by the so-called Islamic State militant group.  The use of poison gas by Islamic State is a serious threat and Kurdish officials urge all “friends” to help counter the menace, Falah Mustafa Bakir, head of the KRG’s Department of Foreign Relations, said in Erbil on Friday, Press TV reported. “The Islamic Republic of Iran has considerable experience in countering chemical attacks” and we need Tehran’s assistance in the campaign against terrorists, he stressed.  Bakir also hailed the “friendly” ties between Tehran and Erbil, saying the two sides are determined to boost bilateral relations. In August, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons voiced serious concern over reports that IS has been using poison gas in Iraq.
