Iraq will send delegations to Washington and Tehran to help ease tensions amid fears of a confrontation between the United States and Iran in the Middle East، Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said on Tuesday.
“There is no Iraqi party wants to push for war،” he said two days after the launch of a rocket in Baghdad and fall near the US embassy، the latest in a series of attacks in the region believes the United States it was carried out on the pretext of Iran.
No one has claimed responsibility for the rocket which was fired at the heavily fortified Green Zone that includes government buildings and diplomatic missions on Sunday. US government sources told Reuters that Washington strongly suspected that Shi'ite Islamist groups with ties to Tehran were behind the rocket attack.
Iran has rejected allegations of involvement in the attacks.
US President Donald Trump said on Monday that Iran would face "great power" if it attacked US interests in the Middle East.
UN envoy to Iraq Janine Henness Blachert told the UN Security Council on Tuesday that Iraq could be "a stabilizing factor in a turbulent region، rather than a battlefield" that could provide room for reconciliation in the region، paving the way for a regional security dialogue.
