Iran Skeptical About American Mission in Iraq

Iranian president called the US-led coalition "ridiculous."


Iran has intensified its criticism of the US-led coalition against the Islamic State (Isis), with key officials saying they doubt Washington intends to destroy the terrorist group and the president calling it "ridiculous".

Following Iran's exclusion from an international conference in Paris aimed at confronting Isis, senior figures in the Islamic Republic have said the US-led coalition will do little against the group and is doomed to fail.
