Falah Mustafa Bakir told The Anadolu Agency that the KRG is prepared to send additional troops "if needed," following public remarks at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
Bakir thanked Turkey for its role in facilitating the movement of an initial convoy of peshmerga fighters into Kobani, saying, "This has proven that we are all together in fighting ISIS and we all have a shared interest. ISIS is a threat to all of us, and we all have to work together in order to defeat them," using an alternative name for ISIS.
The convoy of fighters and heavy weapons crossed the Syrian border from Turkey on Friday to reinforce Kurdish People's Protection Units, who have been fighting an ISIS offensive there since mid September.
