Iraq will continue to require international support in the wake of the military victory in the northern city of Mosul, the Security Council heard on Monday.

The UN's top representative in the country, as well as a senior Iraqi diplomat, told ambassadors of the "substantial" need for assistance, including to remove landmines left by the terrorist and to return scores of displaced residents to their homes.
