UK Foreign Minister Raab says war in the Middle East is in no one’s interests
British foreign minister Dominic Raab said on Sunday he had spoken to Iraq’s prime minister and president to urge a de-escalation of tensions in the region following the killing of a top Iranian military commander by the United States.
Raab, who described Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani as a “regional menace” and said he was sympathetic to the situation the United States found itself in, said he also planned to speak to Iran’s foreign minister.
“There is a route through which allows Iran to come in from out of the international cold,” he told Sky News. “We need to contain the nefarious actions of Iran but we also need to deescalate and stabilize the situation.”
