The Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has ruled out working with Syria's President Assad in order to defeat the threat from Islamic State (IS) extremists.

His comments follow calls that Britain should consider talks with the Assad regime, including from the former head of the British army Lord Dannatt.

Faik Nerweyi, Iraqi Ambassador to the UK, said all countries should come together to drive out the threat from the organisation.
