US Vice President Joe Biden called for 'national unity' when he spoke to Iraqi leaders about responding to the Isis threat.
...[Biden] stressed the need for national unity in responding to the Isis threat against all Iraqi communities, for coordination on security issues going forward, and for moving forward with urgency in forming a new government under the constitution.
...[Biden] discussed the steps required to roll back the terrorists’ advances, and made clear the central importance of embedding security measures within a broader strategy to enlist local communities in the fight against Isis.
The Vice President underscored that the US stands ready to enhance our support to all Iraqis in their fight against Isis.
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."
