Earlier in the day, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow was interested in including Kurds in the work of an intelligence sharing center in Baghdad that Russia runs together with Iraq, Iran and Syria.
"Any effort to move against ISIL, of course, we are interested to be involved," Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) spokesman Safeen Dizayee said.
He added this cooperation should be organized on the national level together with Iraqi authorities in Baghdad, which are also keeping in touch with a US-led international coalition that is equally active in Iraq.
Iraqi Kurds have been playing an active role in the fight against the Daesh group, which is outlawed in Iraq, Russia and many other nations. Kurds are one of the largest ethnic groups in Iraq, and are considered infidels by Sunni Muslim IS militants.
