Obama: Iraqi, Kurdish forces retook strategic dam

WASHINGTON -  President Barack Obama confirmed on Monday that Iraqi and Kurdish forces with U.S. help had recaptured Iraq's biggest dam from Islamist militants, and said the United States would continue to pursue a long-term strategy to fight the Islamist State.

Obama, speaking at a news conference at the White House, noted that the joint operations demonstrated that Iraqi and Kurdish forces were capable of working together.

He also urged Iraqi politicians not to return to divisions that had hurt the country. (Reporting by Jeff Mason, Mark Felsenthal and Steve Holland; Editing by Peter Cooney)
