According to SANA news agency on Sunday, talks focused on consultations, which had been made before the adoption by the Security Council of resolution 1441.
Al-Shara explained his Iraqi counterpart Syria’s efforts with members of the Security Council to ensure that the proposed resolution would safeguard the unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Iraq and protect it against any military strike under the cover of international legitimacy, SANA added.
