The Iraqi ministry considered the US embassy’s remarks which were posted on Twitter, last week, as “interferences in its internal affairs”.
“With six days to go before the sanctions deadline, this is the 6th requirement for Iran’s regime to behave like a normal state: The Iranian regime must respect the sovereignty of the Iraqi government and permit the disarming, demobilisation, and reintegration of Shia militias” the embassy posted on Twitter.
