BAGHDAD — Iraq's new prime minister says foreign ground troops are neither necessary nor wanted in his country's fight against the Islamic State group.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi also urged the international community to expand the campaign against the extremists to neighboring Syria.

He said the fight against the Islamic State group will be endless unless the militants who control a large swath of land spanning both countries are hit in Syria as well.
