The two counties officials reiterated that they do not intend to discuss Iraq in Vienna.

Western diplomats said it is difficult to imagine substantive US and Iranian cooperation.

Earlier this week, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian expressed concern about the situation in Iraq, and said that the US is trying to create a chaotic atmosphere in the Arab country similar to what it did in Ukraine.

“The events in Iraq are following a plan by the United States to turn the country into a second Ukraine,” Amir Abdollahian said in Moscow.

The Iranian deputy foreign minister pointed to Iraq’s incidents, and said, “What is going on in Iraq is a psychological and media war by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) to make the country insecure.”

Amir Abdollahian noted that Iran is ready to help Iraq if requested by the country, and said, “Iraq has not asked for Iran’s help, but Tehran is ready to dispatch weapons to Iraq within the framework of fighting terrorism.”

He reiterated that if the Iraqi ministry to fight terrorism calls for foreign aid Iran will provide such supports in accordance with international laws.
