• Iraq calls for more weapons to fight IS threat


    LONDON: Iraq on Thursday (Friday in Manila) called on the international community to provide more weapons to help it push back Islamic State (IS) amid growing fears the jihadists are planning to bring their fight to the streets of Europe. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, speaking in London at a meeting of the international coalition, also warned of the impact of falling oil prices on his country’s ability to defeat IS. “We don’t want to see a military defeat because of budget and fiscal problems,” Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi told reporters after talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry and ministers from 19 other countries in London.
