(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius on Wednesday urged other superpowers and Middle Eastern States including Iran to join hands to confront the radical Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Fabius, addressing a parliamentary committee, said Paris desires to see all regional countries and Iran as well as the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council join in action against the ISIL.

The French call came after the ISIL militants have recently expanded their control from eastern Syria to western and central regions in Iraq, seizing the key city of Mosul and threatening both the central government in Baghdad and the Kurdish administration in the north.

The group has acted brutally against minorities and executed unarmed persons, including an American journalist, whose cold-blood execution with a knife was shown on social media worldwide.

The United States has backed the Iraqi government forces with airstrikes but has shown no desire to involve its military forces heavily on the Iraqi territories.

Fabius indicated that the concerned nations could coordinate to pool intelligence and military action against the ISIL, warning that the group advocates "a destructive agenda" targeting the whole region.

French President Francois Hollande, earlier on Wednesday, announced that Paris was seeking to hold an international security conference on Iraq in September to examine possible strategies to face the ISIL and other terrorist groups.
