Iraq's Yarallah, Syrian amb. discuss opening joint border

Iraqi Deputy Chief of Staff Abdul Amir Rasheed Yarallah has discussed with the Syrian ambassador to Iraq the mechanism of opening the Iraqi-Syrian border south of the Euphrates.

During the meeting, Yarallah and Ambassador Sattam al-Dandah discussed joint operations in eastern Syria and reviewed the means of cooperation and coordination over the security updates between the two countries, according to a statement by Iraq's Ministry of Defense.

Dandah praised Iraq's government, army and people for supporting Syria and providing all forms of assistance at all levels, according to the statement.

Negotiations between the US and ISIS have failed, under which the US asked the terrorist group to withdraw from the Iraqi-Syrian border, an Iraqi commander said, in return for a safe exit for the families of the militants, according to a local media report.

Commander of IMIS's Western Axis Qassem Mosleh was quoted as saying that the US and Syrian Democratic Forces failed to reach a deal with ISIS to withdraw from Syria's Hajin, Baghur on the Syrian border with Iraq.
