Iraqi President Barham Salih called on Sunday for keeping his country away from regional conflicts.

He called for establishing a stable regional system based on joint security, respecting sovereignty and refraining from meddling in the affairs of other countries.

“The Iraqi stance from regional crisis stems from its commitment to its national policies,” he said during a meeting with US Charge d’Affaires Joey Hood.

Salih underscored the need to build balanced relations with all countries based on the respect of sovereignty and mutual interests.

Iraq has been keen on following constructive dialogue in tackling regional crises and steering clear of policies of war, he stressed.
