Merkel says Germany will keep supporting Iraq in fight against Daesh

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Tuesday that Germany will continue to support Iraq in the ongoing fight against the Daesh terrorist 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 Kadhimi's meeting with French Prime Minister Jean Castex in Paris, AP reported.

Merkel also welcomed Iraq's "willingness to reform".

Kadhimi left Baghdad on Sunday on a trip that started in France and then Germany as the United Kingdom is the next.
