BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Neither the United States nor Iran want war and Iraq is in contact with both, Iraq’s state news agency INA quoted Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi as saying on Tuesday.

The conflict between Washington and Tehran -Baghdad’s main allies who are themselves enemies- is a “complex file” that Iraq is working hard to find solutions for, Abdul Mahdi said.
