The United States called for a “greater commitment” from Iraq’s government on Wednesday in the fight against Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as it lamented Baghdad’s failure to deliver enough soldiers for training and underscored the need to empower Sunni tribesmen.

“As I’ve told Iraqi leaders, while the United States is open to supporting Iraq more than we already are, we must see a greater commitment from all parts of the Iraqi government,” U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter told a congressional hearing in prepared testimony.
