The Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has tonight called Iraq's President Fouad Massoum, urging him to help form an 'inclusive' government.
Foreign Office sources suggest that defeating Islamic militants will only be possible with strong leadership from inside Iraq.
Mr Hammond also spoke to the Kurdish leaders Masoud Barzani pledging British humanitarian support.
Further plane-loads of aid are expected in the coming days.
Requests for arms are, however, likely to be met with a polite 'no '.
David Cameron had five relatives killed during the First World War.
- Captain John Geddes, a great, great uncle killed in April 1915, name on Menin Gate - which he found last year.
- Second Lieutenant Alistair Geddes, died June 1915 - Royal Scots Fusiliers (also a great,great uncle).
- Captain William Henry Cameron, died December 1914 - Highland Light Infantry (also great, great uncle).
- Captain Francis Mount, died October 1915 - Royal Berkshire regiment (also a great, great uncle).
- Francis Ellison Levita died October 1914 (first cousin).

It has not been quite as bad a day for Michael Gove as some would have expected.
Sir Michael Wilshaw did suggest that it was his idea to have unannounced inspections but he did not lay the blame entirely at Michael Gove's door.
He said that headteachers had been concerned that if inspectors did arrive unannounced then he wouldn't be able to be there.
They went to the Department for Education and the department listened to them and did not go along with this idea earlier.
In that sense this isn't so damaging for Michael Gove. Labour have tried to frame this in terms of a failing of his entire academies policy, but there was some support for Mr Gove from Sir Michael who said that structural changes were not at fault.
Falling out with the Home Secretary was not exactly what you would call a good start to this new parliamentary session for Michael Gove
And next week there may be some very awkward questions for the Education Secretary when those reports are published into alleged Islamification in some Birmingham schools.
Nevertheless, he does have a lot of support from the Prime Minister, who is seen as a very close ally of Mr Gove, and I do not think there is any suggestion at the moment that his job is on the line.
