Iraqi Foreign Minister Mohammad al-Hakim welcomed recent statements by US President Donald Trump that the United States does not want a war with Iran.

Hakim stressed that Iraq considers Trump's recent statements "important and accurate and a step in the right direction to calm the situation in the region."

"The stance of Iraq is clear and direct toward the current crisis between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran: It is the pacification and the avoidance of war in our region," a statement by the Iraqi minister said.

Also, Iraqi President Barham Salih said that the regional and international crisis with Iran can turn into a war if we do not manage it properly and expressed the hope that Iran's security will not be targeted and asked the summit to support stability in Iraq.

Iran is a "Muslim and neighboring country to Iraq and Arabs. Certainly, we do not hope that its security become targeted as we (Iraq and Iran) are linked with 1,400 km of borders and various bonds and relationships," Salih stated.

"Sure, the security and stability of a Muslim neighboring country is part of the requirements and interests of the Arab and Muslim countries," he added.

Tensions between Iran and the US have continued to escalate, after a new video showed a secret underground missile base in Iran developing terrifying weapons.
