Iran moves to outmaneuver the US in Iraq

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani made a historic three-day visit to Iraq in mid-March aimed at a new chapter in strategic relations between Iraq and Iran.

According to Iran, the summoning of Pakistan’s Ambassador had nothing to do with the MBS visit to Pakistan during which Imran Khan’s PTI government looks to secure lucrative investment deals with the cash rich Kingdom. Instead, Iran claims that the summoning was due to a suicide terror attack in the south-eastern Iranian hinterlands between the cities of Zahedan and Khash, which took the lives of around 30 elite Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) members, while injuring many more.
