Iran Seeks “Non-aggression” Agreement with Arab States
Iran is reportedly seeking a “non-aggressive” agreement with the Arab states, a report said on Monday, only one day after Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s visit to Iraq.
Zarif during a joint press conference with Iraqi counterpart Mohamed Ali Alhakim showed Tehran’s readiness for a “non-aggression” agreement with Arab states, as cited by Jerusalem Post.
Zarif, however, pointed out that his country is ready to confront any US threats or battle against Iran, the report added, while Iraq is attempting to mediate between the two countries, a plan which has been confirmed by Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi.
Tensions have arisen in the Middle East as the ties between the US and Iran have deteriorated between the two sides. Earlier last week, a rocket was fired at the Green Zone in central Baghdad, Iraqi capital city, where the US embassy and other foreign diplomatic buildings are located.
Washington has accused Iranian-backed Shi’ite militias of carrying out the attack. Source
