Deputy Chairman of the Parliamentary Foreign Relations Committee, Zafer Al-Ani, revealed, on Tuesday, that the European Union ambassadors will meet with the Canadian and American ambassadors to discuss the collective closure of more than 11 embassies in the Green Zone.

Al-Ani said in a televised statement followed by Al-Akhbariya: “The meeting of the ambassadors of the European Union, the United States and Canada, which will be held in Baghdad this afternoon, relates to a collective decision to close the American and European embassies.”

“The meeting will discuss the collective closure of more than 11 Western embassies due to the continuing security threat by outlaw groups,” he added.

He explained, “Washington has obtained reliable intelligence on the re-scenario of storming the US embassy in Tehran or killing its ambassador, as happened in Benghazi, and it will deal firmly with the file, as it will lead to US President Trump losing the presidential elections if the embassy is stormed.”
