Arab newspapers were interested in the Baghdad Conference for Cooperation and Partnership, which was held in the Iraqi capital yesterday, Saturday, in the presence of a number of leaders of regional countries, in addition to delegations from Western countries.

A number of commentators discussed the presence of Saudi Arabia and Iran for the conference, and the possibility of Iraq by means of the current tensions between the two countries.

Saudi-Iranian tension

The London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper says: “The Saudi and Iranian presence, through their foreign ministers, Faisal bin Farhan and Hussein Amir Abdullahian, also indicated an increasing desire on both sides to find lines to meet, and Iraqi Foreign Minister Fouad Hussein indicated that the Saudi-Iranian meetings are continuing and that they have begun.” From Baghdad, a meeting took place between the ruler of Dubai and the Iranian foreign minister.

The newspaper adds: “Baghdad’s success in holding the conference, in rotating the corners between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and sponsoring the meeting of the Emir of Qatar with Sisi and bin Rashid, was accompanied by ignoring outstanding issues, such as the issue of Tehran’s sensitive relationship with Baghdad, as well as the issue of not using Iraq as a launching pad to launch attacks on neighboring countries.”
