BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq's Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi says the international community is not doing enough to help his country win the war against the Islamic State group.
In an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday before departing for the World Economic Forum in Davos, al-Abadi said the international coalition providing support to Iraq has stalled on key issues.
"We are in this almost on our own," he said. "There is a lot being said and spoken, but very little on the ground."

He says his country is grateful for the U.S.-led air campaign and that airstrikes have been effective.
"We want to see an acceleration of the training, acceleration of the delivery of arms," he added, saying Iraq doesn't want anyone to fight for it, "but we need support and logistics."
