The top diplomats of neighboring Iran and Iraq have agreed to soon meet amid a series of regional developments including two back-to-back attacks against U.S. soldiers deployed to both sides of Iraq’s border with Syria. Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and Iraqi Foreign Minister Fouad Hussein spoke via telephone, according to statements published by both sides Friday.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry said the two men discussed “issues of mutual interest, including bilateral ties, regional developments and the Vienna talks,” where Tehran has sought Washington’s return to a 2015 nuclear deal abandoned by then-President Donald Trump in 2018.
Amir-Abdollahian also brought up the ongoing war in Eastern Europe, on which he “emphasized the need to focus on dialogue and a diplomatic solution to the crisis in Ukraine and said addressing the root causes of the current crisis was the key to the establishment of peace and lasting stability in the Eurasian region.”
