Baghdad was working to prevent further attacks on the Green Zone, Iraq’s Foreign Minister told AL Arabiya TV on Monday.
The missile attacks on the Green Zone were embarrassing for the government, Fuad Hussein said, adding that a number of those connected to the attacks were arrested.

“We are working with diplomatic missions to provide the necessary protection,” he said.
Iraq asked Iran to participate in stopping those who target the Green Zone, the minister said.
“Washington may take drastic measures if its embassy is targeted,” Hussein claimed.
Tension between Washington and Iran negatively affects the Iraqi arena, according to the minister.
Iraq, the minister asserted, was in need of coalition forces to confront Daesh, which he said was still present in border areas with Syria.
