Iraqi Foreign Minister Mohammed Ali Hakim announced that the Iranian, French and US foreign ministers are to visit Baghdad in January.

According to the Iraqi Al-Farat News Agency, Hakim has said that three foreign ministers and one president will visit Iraq in January.

He declined to name the country whose president is to travel to Baghdad. Earlier, Iraqi sources had announced imminent visit of French President Emanuel Macron to Baghdad.

And also Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called the clandestine visit of US President Donald Trump to Iraq as a sign of the failure of Washington's policies in the region.

'We recently witnessed an important development in the region. Since 2003, Americans have claimed that they saved Iraq and Afghanistan, but if this is true, why do not you go publicly in Iraq to see how the Iraqis welcome you in the streets of Baghdad and Basra?! That you go covertly and in a dark night enter a military base and take pictures with a few militaries and talk shortly and get out of Iraq one or two hours later, this means your failure,' Rouhani said addressing a cabinet meeting on Wednesday.
