KRG to support Iraqi troops in Mosul operation: Massoud Barzani
The Kurdistan Regional Government is ready to support Iraqi troops in their Mosul operation when required, KRG's President Massoud Barzani has said.

Barzani's comments came on Monday after U.S.-led coalition forces began supporting Iraqi troops against the Islamic State (IS) in Tikrit, following a request from Iraqi PM Haidar al-Abadi, Anadolu news agency said.

The operation is seen as a step towards seizing Mosul, IS’s largest stronghold in Iraq.

Barzani said during a meeting with Luxembourg’s Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn on Monday: "When the Iraqi government is ready, we can help also. We are waiting on the Iraqi troops.

"Daesh (IS) is a threat for everyone, but military techniques are not enough to fight against terrorism - the organization's financial and logistic sources should also be eradicated."
