The government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Wednesday it is willing to help Baghdad in the fight against "terrorism", a day after jihadi fighters overran Iraq's second-largest city Mosul.

"The foreign-backed terrorism that our brothers in Iraq are facing is the same that is targeting Syria," said the foreign ministry.

Damascus is "ready to cooperate with Iraq to face terrorism, our common enemy", it said in a statement.
