Iraqi Federal Police members hold an ISIS flag, which they pulled down during fighting in the Old City of Mosul, Iraq, on July 4, 2017.

:: In an exclusive interview with Al-Arabiya television channel, Iraqi foreign ministry spokesperson Ahmad Jamal denied Baghdad’s intention to militarily intervene in Syria to fight ISIS.

Jamal added that the Iraqi constitution prohibits intervening in the affairs of another country.

Iraq’s ambassador to Tehran Rajih Al-Mousawi had told the Iranian News Agency Tasnim that Baghdad does not mind in militarily intervening in Syria to fight ISIS, adding that “Iraq has friends like Iran to help it.”

Iraqi officials immediately denied Baghdad would intervene in Syria and condemned these statements. Others accused Iran of twisting the envoy’s remarks.

Iraqi Vice President Osama Nujaifi commented on Mousawi’s statements saying they represented “his own personal opinion.”
