German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Tuesday that Germany will continue to support Iraq in the ongoing fight against the Islamic State group. “The IS remains a threat to the region, and of course beyond,” she said.
Merkel met with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi in Berlin, a day after al-Kadhimi’s meeting with French Prime Minister Jean Castex in Paris. Merkel also welcomed Iraq’s “willingness to reform”. Al-Kadhimi left Baghdad on Sunday on a trip that will see him make stops in France, Germany and the United Kingdom.
