(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) France and Germany announced Wednesday plans to provide urgent military aid for the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) to help it combat the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in coordination with the central government in Baghdad.

French President Francois Hollande decided, after agreement with the Iraqi government, to send the military assistance in the coming few hours to meet the urgent needs of the KRG, according to a presidential statement.

France is determined to continue working with the Iraqi government in fighting the ISIL and lobbying the international community to respond to the disastrous situation in Kurdistan, the statement said.

The French president reaffirmed support to the Iraqi Prime Minister-Designate Haider Al-Abadi and other politicalleaders, including the president and parliament speaker, in their effort to form an inclusive government, it added.


Meanwhile, the German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen said her ministry is mulling the shipment of urgent military aid to KRG and Iraqi government to help them combat the ISIL.

The military supplies will be delivered to the parties that fight ISIL in Kurdistan, north Iraq, she told the German ARD TV channel.

The Iraqi government has requested these supplies but they will actually be delivered to the people fighting the ISIL in Kurdistan, she said, referring to the decision of her government yesterday not to deliver military supplies to the central government of Iraq.

The minister commended the Turkish role in facilitating the relief and military aid to neighboring Kurdistan.
