A Russian news agency reported that Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi will visit Iran on Monday.
The station quoted sources as saying that Abdul Mahdi would discuss with Iranian officials the tension between Iran and the United States and Britain.
Abdul Mahdi said that his country is seeking a calm in the crisis between the United States and Iran. He also talked about sending two Iraqi delegations to Washington and Tehran to help contain the tension between them, stressing that Iraq is playing only a “calm role” and not mediation.
Abdul Mahdi said at the end of May that he would visit Washington and Tehran soon to discuss the situation in the region against the background of the crisis between the United States and Iran.
