Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi has said Iraq stands behind any efforts to regain stability in the Middle East, especially amid the rising tensions between Iran and Washington.

The Prime Minister’s remarks came during his meeting with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and his delegation in Baghdad.

Abdul-Mahdi stressed that Iraq supports any effort serving the stability of the region and the world, and that it collaborates with EU countries in this regard.

“We have been sending delegations and messages to Tehran, Washington and Europe for this purpose,” he added.

The German Foreign Minister also expressed his country's deep concern towards the regional situation and Germany's great interest in its stability.

Maas arrived in Baghdad yesterday on an official visit to meet with Iraqi top officials to discuss bilateral relations and regional issues.
