The Iraqi government and the European Union announced Thursday that they will establish a joint intelligence center to combat ISIL.
According to a statement from Iraq’s interior ministry, the EU and Iraq agreed to establish the intelligence center during a visit by an EU security committee.
In the statement, Iraqi Minister of Interior Mohammed al-Ghaban said many ISIL militants in the region come from EU countries.
Iraq has been gripped by a security vacuum since June 2014 when ISIL stormed the northern city of Mosul and declared a self-styled caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria.Last Mod: 29 Ekim 2015, 16:17
