Obama anti-jihadist plan “strong message of support,” says Iraq FM

US President Barack Obama’s plan for an international anti-jihadist coalition is a “strong message of support” for Baghdad and its fight against militants, Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said Saturday.

“We welcome that, and we have repeatedly called on our international partners for help and support because this threat is a very deadly threat… not only to the people of Iraq or the region, but to Europe, to America, to NATO,” Zebari told AFP.
