Iraqi FM urges Arab states to dialogue with Iran

September 28, 2018

TEHRAN – Ibrahim al-Jaafari, Iraq’s foreign minister, said on Friday the world has no option but to start negotiation with Iran to resolve regional disputes.

“We must be clear in identifying the problems and presenting solutions to them; to achieve stability in the region,” Jaafari told a meeting of Arab foreign ministers in New York, according to the Baghdad Post.

He called for resorting to peaceful options in settling the region’s problems, instead of war specter.

Iraq’s chief diplomat also said maintaining the unity of the Arab nations and solving the common Arab problems, especially the Palestinian issue, should be on top of Arabs’ priorities.
