( US Secretary of State John Kerry stated on Saturday, that the progress against ISIS in the military operations to liberate Tikrit is purely Iraqi, pointing to the participation of “militias” receiving instructions from the commander of Iran’s Qods Forces Qassem Soleimani.

Kerry underlined the need to conduct a transitional operation in Syria to push its president Bashar al-Assad toward negotiations.

Kerry said during a joint press conference with his French counterpart Laurent Fabius held yesterday in Paris and followed by, that the progress against the ISIS group is “purely Iraqi,” but some participating militias receive instructions from Soleimani.

Kerry added that Iran’s fighting against ISIS on ground might be part of the assistance, but does not mean its behavior in other countries is accepted.
