Three days after declaring victory over the Isis group, Iraq's prime minister warns that the group's extremists might "erupt again somewhere else" without international cooperation in combatting the militants.

(AP) -- Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi told reporters Tuesday that "we have managed to break them" in Iraq, but added that it's a worry for everyone that Isis has "this unfortunate ability to recruit young people very quickly."

He said there must be an effort to "remove their grassroots in the region."

Al-Abadi made the comments at a news conference on the sidelines of a climate summit outside Paris. 

He called for continued international cooperation in training Iraqi forces and providing logistical and intelligence support.

Al-Abadi declared victory in the more than three-year fight against Isis in a national address Saturday.
