Relations between Russia and the US have sunk to their lowest since the Cold War over the crisis in ex-Soviet Ukraine with Washington accusing the Kremlin of backing a separatist rebellion.
The two have also been at loggerheads over the war in Syria where Moscow has helped prop up the regime of strongman Bashar al-Assad.
Russia has blamed the latest violence sweeping Iraq on the 2003 US-led invasion of the country and said that any strikes on jihadist forces would have to be authorised by the UN.
