Saudi Foreign Minister: Iran is taking over Iraq

In a strongly worded statement, Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal told reporters during a joint conference with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Riyadh that “Iran is taking over Iraq, Al-Arabiya reported.
John Kerry said the U.S. was keeping an eye on the Iranian regime’s 'destabilizing' acts even as he tries to reach a deal on Tehran's nuclear program.
He told reporters: “Even as we engage in these discussions with Iran around this program, we will not take our eye off Iran's destabilizing actions” in the region”.

U.S. Secretary of state said Iran is still considered a state-sponsor of terrorism, adding that his country was aware of Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani’s presence and activity in Iraq.
