Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov held bilateral talks with Iraqi President Barham Salih and Jordan’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Ayman Safadi in Rome on Friday.

“And once again I would like also personally to congratulate you on getting this position after you finalised the formation of the new structures on the basis of May elections. Really very glad that this process has succeeded, unlike in some other countries,” Lavrov told the Iraqi President.

“Iraq is a fascinating place. A lot of challenges but it somehow bumps along, moves along, which is good. Positive story in that sense. I remember with gratitude and affection our meeting last time in Moscow and I am happy to see you here and pleased. I send my appreciation to the president and for his kind congratulation that was already said,” Salih responded.

Both meetings happened on the sidelines of the Mediterranean Dialogues forum.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
