Gov't News: Iraq Conflict Intensifies as the Navy Sends a Ship to the Region


 
PRLog - Jun. 17, 2014 - ExecutiveGov is part of Executive Mosaic's portfolio of media properties and serves its executive audience by covering stories focused on federal agencies, U.S. foreign policy and each branch of government.

The website published a number of stories this week including pieces about the recent escalation in conflict in Iraq.

John Kirby, Pentagon press secretary, said on Monday that the U.S. won't consult with the Iranians concerning the insurgency in Iraq.

“There is absolutely no intention, no plan to coordinate military activities between the United States and Iran,” he said.

The U.S. is advising Iraq's neighboring countries to engage in constructuve dialogue about the insurgency.

As a reaction to the recent insurgency, the U.S. Navy has moved the USS Mesa Verde to the Arabian Gulf.

“Its presence in the Gulf adds to that of other U.S. naval ships already there — including the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush — and provides the commander in chief additional options to protect American citizens and interests in Iraq, should he choose to use them,” said Kirby.

The ship is meant to support emergency and quick response operations.
