Iraqi Foreign Ministry is following with great interest the recent and serious developments regarding US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from the nuclear agreement, which is in the interest of escalation and will not benefit from it except the destruction and the wars that the region suffered so much. The Ministry also calls upon all parties to do their utmost to avoid the repercussions. And to maintain the positive results achieved in this complex issue, of which Iraq was one of the first countries to welcome its signing because of its significant impact on the establishment of peace in the Middle East.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs regrets the attitude of the President of the United States is hasty and unaccounted for and welcomes the decision of the remaining five members of the group to its moderate position to adhere to the agreement and not to withdraw from it and push towards solutions of an international rather than individual nature to contribute to regional and international security and stability.
