Iraq never to enter Daesh-backing coalitions against Iran

IRNA – Former Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki said on Sunday that his country will never enter coalition with countries such as Saudi Arabia which are sponsoring Daesh.

He also reiterated that Iraq will never allow it soil be used for attacking Iran.

“Iraq will never be part of anti-Iran coalitions led by the countries such a Saudi Arabia which have brought war and devastation to Iraq,” he stressed.
