Iraq – Baghdad
Iraq on Wednesday called for upholding international resolutions with regard to the Palestinian cause and reiterated his country’s support for the Palestinian people and their rights.
Iraq's comment came during a phone call between its foreign minister Mohamed al-Hakim and his Palestinian counterpart Riyad al-Maliki, during which the two ministers discussed bilateral ties and the latest developments in the region, a statement by the Iraqi foreign ministry said.
Hakim expressed Iraq's rejection of any step that leads to seizing the occupied Palestinian territories and called for necessarily enforcing the international resolutions in this regard.
Hakim also renewed Iraq's supportive position towards the Palestinian question and the struggle of the Palestinian people for their legitimate national rights and the establishment of their independent state with east Jerusalem as its capital.
