UN Security Council begins Iraq crisis talks

Kurdish Iraqi Peshmerga forces deploy their troops and armoured vehicles on the outskirts of Kirkuk, on June 12, 2014United Nations (United States) (AFP) – The UN Security Council on Thursday held talks on the unraveling crisis in Iraq, where Kurds seized control of the contested oil city of Kirkuk and Arab jihadists pushed towards Baghdad. The consultations behind closed doors began shortly after 11:30 am (1530 GMT) and were due to include a briefing by video link from the UN special representative to Iraq, Nickolay Mladenov. It remains deeply unclear what further steps, if any, the UN Security Council can take. “It’s obviously an extremely dramatic situation, clearly rooted in what happened in Iraq in 2003-2004,” Russian ambassador Vitaly Churkin told reporters on his way into the meeting.
