France looking at supplying Iraqi Kurds with arms: FM

Humanitarian aid is off loaded from a plane at the airport in Arbil, the capital of the autonomous Kurdish region of northern Iraq, on August 10, 2014France, in consultation with its EU partners, is looking at supplying arms to Iraq’s Kurds to fight against Islamic State jihadists, Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Sunday. “One way or another, they must receive, in a sure way, equipment that will allow them to defend themselves and to counterattack,” Fabius told France 2 television from Arbil, the capital of the autonomous Kurdistan region in northern Iraq. France and Britain have pledged support for a US-led operation helping Iraqi civilians — many of them from the Yazidi minority — who are fleeing a murderous advance by Islamic State (IS) militants. Fabius reiterated that France’s military would not intervene in Iraq without UN Security Council authorisation and a threat to French nationals.
