Iraq and Qatar on Monday called for a peaceful solution to crises in the Middle East region.

'THE PEACE PROCESS MUST BEGIN'

The call came in a phone call Iraqi Foreign Minister Mohamed Alhakim with his Qatari counterpart Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani.

Talks between the two diplomats dwelt on the latest developments in the region and the need to reach peaceful solutions to crises, the Iraqi Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Tension has been rising between the US and Iran since Washington unilaterally withdrew from a 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers.
