The US Vice Pres­i­dent, Joseph Bi­den spoke with Iraqi Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent Ma­soud Barzani to con­grat­u­late him on the Kur­dish Pesh­merga suc­cess against ISIL in Sin­jar.

The two lead­ers noted that this op­er­a­tion is part of a con­certed cam­paign to in­crease pres­sure on ISIL in its heart­land and dis- rupt sup­ply routes be­tween Mo­sul and Raqqa. They em­pha­sized that this pres­sure will con­tinue over the com­ing weeks and months. The Vice Pres­i­dent praised co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the coali­tion and Pesh­merga forces and un­der­scored the United States’ strong com­mit­ment to work­ing with the global coali­tion, the Gov­ern­ment of Iraq, and the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment to con­tinue to de­grade and ul­ti­mately de­stroy ISIL.

Both lead­ers agreed on the im­por­tance of con­tin­ued close co­op­er­a­tion in the fight against ISIL in all ar­eas, in­clud­ing the mil­i­tary, eco­nomic, and po­lit­i­cal lines of ef­fort.
