Tillerson: US pledges to assist in rebuilding retaken areas from ISIS
The US does not recognize Kurdistan independence referendum, Agency Nova quoted US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as saying Wednesday in a phone call to Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al Abadi. 

The US supports the unity of Iraq and the steps taken by the federal government in Baghdad to avoid clashes by enforcing the law.

Tillerson added that the US has engaged in the struggle against ISIS and backed all efforts by the Iraqi government to eliminate terrorism and liberate Iraq from these terrorists.

The US also pledges to assist Baghdad in reconstructing the liberated areas. 

Abadi, for his part, said that what happened in Kirkuk represents only a "redeployment" of troops to enforce order in the province, according to the law of the Constitution.
