Shafaq News / The Iraqi Foreign Minister, Fouad Hussein announced on Sunday, that it had taken four measures to stop the attacks on the Green Zone and Baghdad Airport, promising “positive results” soon.
This came when he received a phone call from Heiko Maas, the German Foreign Minister.
According to a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs received by Shafaq News Agency, the conversation focused on “bilateral relations and ties between the two countries, and on the initial decision of the American administration to withdraw the embassy from Baghdad.”
Hussein expressed “concern about this decision, despite it being a sovereign decision on the American side, but it may lead to results that are not in the interest of the Iraqi people.”
The Iraqi foreign minister affirmed that “his country’s government has taken a number of security, organizational, political, and diplomatic measures to stop the attacks on the Green Zone and the airport, and there will be tangible positive results in the near future.”
The two ministers discussed “various future possibilities for the status of diplomatic missions in Baghdad,” stressing “the importance of continuing to exchange views and communicate in order to find solutions to this crisis.”
The file of the repeated targeting of US interests and forces witnessed widespread controversy in the country recently after news that Washington might close its embassy in Baghdad, which could lead to the imposition of economic sanctions on the country.
