Iraq relationship with US not against Iran: Araji

"We do not want armed groups to use Iraq as a base to threaten Iran or any other country and we welcome any foreign country that respects Iraqi sovereignty and law."

A few days ago, in a meeting with the ambassadors of Sweden, Norway and Denmark regarding the talks between Iran and regional countries, Araji stated that talks between Iran and countries of the region are doing well so that Iraq's hosting of these talks is solid evidence for the positive and constructive role of Iraqi diplomacy.
