Speaking to reporters from Martha's Vineyard, US President Barack Obama congratulated Iraq’s President Fouad Masoum and newly-nominated prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, encouraging the leadership to "unite Iraq's different communities" and to "form a new cabinet as quickly as possible."

Obama repeated his belief that a diverse, representative government in Baghdad was a necessary partner to meet the difficult task of confronting the Islamic State, a radical religious militia holding territory in eastern Syria and northern Iraq.
