French Foreign Minister John Yves Le Drian said on Thursday France appreciated Iraq's efforts to ease tensions in the Gulf region and maintain maritime security.
"France and Iraq will be partners in the reconstruction and against the new threat of the Turkish incursion into the east of the Euphrates," he said.
He added: "There must be a meeting of the international coalition against the Turkish operation, and the Turkish incursion threatens to re-ISIS in Iraq and Syria."
"We will continue to cooperate with Iraq to achieve the maximum effectiveness of impunity," he said.
He continued, "France has a lot of companies, especially in the field of energy and transport, and during our previous visit was allocated a billion euros to the necessary response faced by Iraq."
"During the meeting with the Iraqi foreign minister, we also touched on the Iranian issue and tension in the Gulf region and expressed our hope that this tension will be reduced through an Iranian will to move on the Vienna agreement and stay away from destabilizing the region," he said. "There are channels to reduce tension," he said.
He expressed his country's appreciation for "Iraq's efforts to reduce tension in the Gulf and ensure maritime security."
