Foreign Minister Mr. Fuad Hussein received a phone call from German Foreign Minister Mr. Heiko Maas.
The conversation focused on bilateral relations and ties between the two countries, and on the initial decision of the US administration to withdraw the embassy from Baghdad.
Minister Fuad Hussein expressed concern about this decision, despite it being a sovereign decision by the US side, but it may lead to results that are not in the interest of the Iraqi people.
Minister Fuad Hussein also confirmed that the Iraqi government has taken a number of security, organizational, political, and diplomatic measures to stop the attacks on the Green Zone and the airport, and there will be tangible positive results in the near future.
The two sides discussed various future possibilities for the status of diplomatic missions in Baghdad, and stressed the importance of continuing the exchange of views and communications in order to find solutions to this crisis.
