NEW YORK, June 20 (Reuters) - U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warned on Friday that airstrikes against Islamist militants in Iraq could be counter-productive unless moves were made to create an inclusive government.

"Military strikes against (ISIL) might have little lasting effect or even be counter-productive if there is no movement towards inclusive government in Iraq," Ban said, referring to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. (Reporting by Michelle Nichols; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
