Iraq announces the end of the fifth round of the Saudi-Iranian talks

Today, Thursday, Iraqi Foreign Minister Fouad Hussein announced that the fifth round of Saudi-Iranian talks has ended.

“There is a discussion that the next session between Riyadh and Tehran will be at a level other than foreign ministers,” Hussein said, in a press statement, stressing that conditions are being created for a future round.


Regarding the Iranian nuclear negotiations, the Iraqi Foreign Minister affirmed that his country "supports the nuclear negotiations between Tehran and Washington," noting that "the tension negatively affects the internal situation in Iraq."


He stressed that Iraq seeks to develop relations with the United States, and that the American military presence in Iraq is within the framework of training and consultation, describing relations with Iran as good.


Hussein said of Turkey that "it is an important country and we have common interests and we have to reach understandings," stressing the need to develop relations with it on the basis that it is based on common understanding.


 "Negotiations are underway with the political organizations, and there is a tendency to hold a parliament session soon," the Iraqi foreign minister explained, commenting on the political crisis in his country, hoping that an agreement would be reached with the Sadrist movement to be part of the government formation.


He believed that Iraq is suffering in forming the new government and there are conflicts between the Shiite party blocs, pointing at the same time to "progress in the negotiations between the various Iraqi forces."
