Strong and durable relations among regional states will result in elimination of terrorism. This is while, increasing divisions among regional states will prepare suitable ground for growth of such groups as Daesh.’

We are presently working on bringing views of all sides closer to one another given Iraq’s special relations with Iran and Saudi Arabia.’
