(MENAFN) Iraqi Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein has declared that Baghdad was not happy with the White House Iran policy under previous U.S. Leader Donald Trump.
“The tensions that existed in the region between Iran and America under former President Donald Trump were reflected in the Iraqi arena, and we were not with Trump's policy and did not support his decisions. Consequently, the tensions between Washington and Tehran during Trump's tenure moved to the Iraqi arena,” Hussein added.
The Iraqi foreign minister commented in an interview with the Bahraini Al Watan tabloid.
Hussein declared that Iraq’s attempt to revive ties between neighboring nations in order to guarantee the security of the region, saying that collective security in the region reflects in a good way on the security situation in his nation.
He as well praised the strength of Iran-Iraq ties.
“Our relations with neighboring Iran are strong, and we, in fact, through many times, seek to restore Iranian-[Persian] Gulf relations because this is in the interest of Iraq, because whenever there is security in the region, the collective security in the region reflects positively on the security situation inside Iraq, so we seek to restore relations between neighboring countries,” he continued. “In this context, the first Baghdad conference was held, and the second version of the Baghdad conference will be held in Jordan.”
