Iraq's Prime Minister has vowed to rid the country of Islamic State in the next year, after counter-terrorism forces reclaimed the western city of Ramadi from IS fighters.

The country's army raised the Iraqi flag above the central government complex in the western city of Ramadi a day after it declared victory over IS, who had held the city.

"If 2015 was a year of liberation, 2016 will be the year of great victories, terminating the presence of Daesh (IS) in Iraq and Mesopotamia," Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said in a televised address.

"We are coming to liberate Mosul, which will be the fatal blow to Daesh."

US Secretary of State John Kerry said the coalition would continue to support Iraqi forces as Ramadi was stabilized.
