(MENAFN - #Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and U.S. Vice President Joe Biden have discussed by phone the current volatile situation in Iraq.

Biden called Erdogan to discuss insurgency in #Iraq and Turkish hostages taken by militants in Turkey, while insurgents were seizing key Iraqi cities and pressing closer to Baghdad, the Prime Minister's Office said in a release.

Biden and Erdogan consulted on the danger that the al-Qaida-inspired Islamic State of #Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) poses for regional and global security, and agreed that Iraqis must unite to address the security challenges.

Durg the phone conversation, Biden affirmed the U.S. offer to help #Turkey recover diplomats who were captured in the Iraqi city of Mosul, it said.


Meanwhile, the Turkish government said it would establish a crisis desk to inform the public daily about the latest developments in Iraq, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on June 13 after a crisis coordination meeting at the Foreign Ministry.

"We are establishing a crisis desk that will work 24 hours a day. It will be a crisis desk in which other ministries will also have representatives. It will answer all of the questions and give us daily analyses," Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.
