|Iranian, Italian FMs hold talks on Iraq||
TEHRAN – In a telephone conversation on Tuesday Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Italian counterpart Federica Mogherini held consultations over the recent developments in Iraq, emphasizing the necessity to establish a unity government in the Arab country.
The two diplomats called for an urgent formation of a “government of national unity” after Iraq’s prime minister-designate Haider al-Abadi was tasked to form a new government, the Fars news agency reported.
Earlier on Monday, Iraq’s president asked Abadi to form a new government, snubbing the incumbent Prime Minister Nouri Maliki.
The two foreign ministers also underlined the need to counter the onslaughts by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Iraq and taking global actions in support of the Iraqi people against the terrorist group.
