A joint United States and Iran partnership to help manage the situation in Iraq would be the "height of folly", US Republican senator John McCain has said.
The 2008 Republican presidential candidate published a statement on his official website saying that:
“It would be the height of folly to believe that the Iranian regime can be our partner in managing the deteriorating security situation in Iraq."
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."
