Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein called, on Monday, for a cease-fire between Russia and Ukraine and an end to the crisis through dialogue.
"We welcome the visit of the Russian delegation to Baghdad, which is an important opportunity to see the Russian side's point of view on various issues," Hussein said in a joint press conference with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov in Baghdad.
He added, "Iraq's position is clear on wars, so we call for a cease-fire for the Russian-Ukrainian war, and we also call for ending the crisis through dialogue."
He continued, "In our discussions, we touched on issues of the region and bilateral relations, and we also studied how to deal with the financial dues of Russian companies in Iraq," stressing "the importance of the meeting of the joint committee between Iraq and Russia."
He pointed out that "Iraq has historical relations with Russia, and we have cooperation with it in the security and economic aspects." Ended 29/N33
