Saairun Alliance MP Burhan al-Mamouri called on the Council of Ministers to hold an extraordinary session to discuss the escalation of tensions in the region and its repercussions on Iraq.

The escalation of remarks and tensions between Iran and the US should take an important part of the concerns of the government," Mamouri said in a press statement, adding that "in case an armed clash [took place], Iraq will be the most affected."

He also stressed rejecting turning Iraq to a battlefield, urging the government to deal "with caution" with all possibilities.
