Germany, Italy say prepared to send weapons to Iraq's Kurds

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/21/2014 - 00:56
By Sabine Siebold and Roberto Landucci BERLIN/ROME (Reuters) - Germany and Italy joined Britain and France on Wednesday in saying they would arm Iraqi Kurdish security forces fighting Islamic State militants in northern Iraq, in close coordination with the Baghdad central government. Islamic State, which posted a video on Tuesday purporting to show the beheading of an captive American journalist, poses a threat to the world and Europe cannot simply stand by, Germany's defence and foreign ministers said. Besides humanitarian aid and military equipment such as body armour and helmets, "we can also imagine providing further equipment, including weapons," Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said. "In close agreement with our European and international partners we will do this in such a way that it boosts the peshmerga's [semi-autonomous Kurdish security forces] ability to defend themselves," Steinmeier said.
