The United States has "no intentions, no plans to coordinate military activities with Iran," regarding the current crisis in Iraq, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby has said.
"There will be no military consultations with Iran," Kirby emphasized.
Kirby was responding to remarks by Secretary of State John Kerry in an interview with Yahoo in which Kerry, when asked if the US military cooperation was possible regarding Iraq, replied he "wouldn't rule out anything that would be constructive."
The State Department clarified their position later by saying that the US would be open to political not military discussions.
The Foreign Secretary has been clear on the threat of Isis, but he has ruled out the prospect of any UK military involvement in the crisis.
Iraq’s foreign minister, Hoshyar Zebari, is a natural diplomat. Polite, immaculately dressed, and blessed with a great memory.
Isis has paraded military equipment in Mosul it captured from when the Iraqi army fled in what some see as a "nightmare scenario."
