Iraqi Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi said on Tuesday that Washington's decision to designate Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) a terrorist group "could have negative repercussions on Iraq and the region".

"Iraq tried to stop the decision," Abd al-Mahdi told reporters during his weekly news conference, adding that Iraq would use all of its efforts to bring calm to the region since it maintains good relations with both Tehran and Washington
