BAGHDAD, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- The U.S.-led coalition on Friday confirmed that a cease-fire has been reached between the Iraqi force and the Kurdish Peshmerga forces, a Kurdish media reported.
"What we know is that there is a ceasefire," Colonel Ryan Dillon, spokesperson for the international coalition told Rudaw television.
Dillon said the coalition wants the cease-fire to be extended so that the two sides will "refocus" on the fight against the terrorist Islamic State (IS) group in Iraq, the Kurdish channel said.
"We certainly want that (cease-fire) to extend, to not be just a cease-fire for a short period of time, but that it extends to no more fighting," Dillon said.
