US backs federal system in Iraq: Biden

US Vice President Joe Biden, pictured at the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, DC, on June 30, 2014Vice President Joe Biden said the United States would back a federal system in Iraq, as he pressed for unity in the sharply divided country amid a growing terror threat. Writing in a Washington Post opinion piece, publised Friday, Biden said the United States was ready to “further enhance” its support of Iraq’s fight against the Islamic State, and would urge its international partners to do so as well. He pointed to “functioning federalism” as an approach to breach the divisions in Iraq. Biden is a longtime supporter of the plan under which Iraq would be divided into three semi-autonomous regions for Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds, respectively.
