US ally and Iran’s neighbour, Iraq is caught in the middle

Iraq has been mediating between both sides, US and Iran, to try and avoid a crisis.

Iraq’s prime minister says he’s sending a delegation to the United States and Iran.

There are concerns a military confrontation could lead to renewed conflict in Iraq, which is a US ally and Iran‘s neighbour.

People in Iraq are hoping for a peaceful solution and hope their country will not be turned into a battleground again.
