The US has questioned Iraq's commitment to fighting Islamic State and lamented the lack of Iraqi recruits available for training.

US trainers have only received 7,000 recruits in recent months, with a target of 24 thousand by autumn.

The top US military official also highlighted the need to empower Sunni tribesmen in the fight against the Islamic State.

US officials are pressuring the Iraqi government to be more inclusive and representative of Iraq's three major ethnic groups - Sunnis, Shias and Kurds.
