Islamist militant group Isis "knows no boundaries" and should be a concern for "the entire world" , a spokesman for the Kurdistan regional government has said.
Safeen Dizayee told ITV News Senior International Correspondent John Irvine that the Kurds had done their best to help put back together the 'Humpty Dumpty' of Iraq, but that they now faced a "very angry Frankenstein" in the form of Isis.
He also criticised the government in Baghdad, who he said had left Kurdistan's military under-resourced for a possible battle with 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."
