Abdul Mahdi, speaking to reporters, said Baghdad had tried to head off Trump's decision and added that Iraq would do all it could to bring calm to the region since it maintained good relations with both Tehran and Washington.

The US's tough stance on Iran can not work in isolation; it must be followed by concerted global efforts to rein in terror where it threatens to destabilise an entire region.
