Iran may cooperate with US against Iraq jihadists

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani speaks during a press conference in the capital Tehran on June 14, 2014Iran may consider cooperating with its arch-foe the United States to fight Sunni extremist militants in Iraq, but has not yet received a request to intervene militarily across the border. In the clearest indication so far that Iran may be pulled into the conflict, President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday admitted that turmoil caused by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL) advance towards Baghdad could have calamitous dimensions for the whole region. Acknowledging his country’s “close and intimate” relations with Iraq, Rouhani left the door open to some form of intervention when asked if mutual interest could possibly bring Iran and the US together. “If we see that the United States takes action against terrorist groups in Iraq, then one can think about it,” he said.
