ERBIL, Iraq (Reuters) - The president of Iraq's Kurdistan region said on Saturday that "better results" could be achieved in the war against Islamic State militants if Russia and the international coalition coordinated their efforts.

In a statement, Massoud Barzani also said he welcomed any country, including Russia, that assisted the region's peshmerga forces against the insurgents.
