Obama does not rule “no option” to stop the advance of extremists in Iraq

The US President, Barack Obama, doesn’t rule “no option” to stop the advance of extremists in Iraq and to assist the Government of Prime Minister, Nuri al-Maliki in the most effective way

The President told reporters that Iraq is in a “state of emergency” and the United States “will seek how to provide more effective assistance”.

“We don’t rule out anything to avoid jihadists can consolidate their presence in Iraq”, he said.

Obama said that “certain military actions are needed immediately and our national security team consideres all options”.

At the same time, the president recalled that there should be a “political component” to resolve the situation, as well as greater cooperation from the international community.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, Muslim radical Sunni organization with presence in Syria and Iraq, that recently broke up with Al Qaeda, controls now Iraqi cities like Mosul and Tikrit, and so threats Baghdad.

Besides, major Republican leaders have criticized Obama decided to withdraw from Iraq in late 2011 and called a policy change to include more decisive action to help the Maliki government, including air cover.

The Security Council gives its “unanimous support” for the fight against terrorism in Iraq

The UN Security Council gave today its “unanimous support” for the fight against terrorism in Iraq and doesn’t discuss a hypothetical intervention in the country, according to the president -the Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin- said.

The ambassadors of the fifteen members of the Council discussed today, in an emergency meeting, the serious crisis in Iraq, where Sunni radical Islamic militants have taken control of a piece of land and several cities.

After the meeting, Churkin told reporters the main conclusions of the meeting, which also stressed the importance of the government in Baghdad, Shi’ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, enhances national dialogue in order to win over the Sunni minority and create a united front against terrorists.

“The members of the Security Council are united in their attitude about the situation in Iraq” and showed “unanimous support to the Goverment and the people of Iraq in its fight against terrorism”, said Churkin.
