PERSIAN GULF-TENSIONS-THE LATEST

The Latest: Iraq to try help end crisis between US and Iran

BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq’s foreign minister says Baghdad wants to mediate between the United States and Iran and will work to find a resolution to the crisis between its two allies.

Mohammed al-Hakim made his comments on Sunday during a joint news conference in Baghdad with his visiting Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Zarif says Iran “did not violate the nuclear deal” signed with world powers in 2015 and urged European nations to exert efforts to preserve the deal after the U.S. withdrew from the agreement last year.

The unraveling of the deal has spiked regional tensions and escalated a war of words between Tehran and Washington.

Speaking about the rising tensions, Zarif says Iran will be able to “face the war, whether it is economic or military through the steadfastness and its forces.”

Zarif called for the singing of a non-aggression agreement between Iran and Arab countries in the Persian Gulf region.
