Iraq's parliamentary speaker visited Tehran, where he met with his Iranian opposite number as well as Supreme National Security Council Secretary Ali Shamkhani and Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. Shamkhani argued that the "deployment of U.S. forces in the region is a long-term threat to the governments which are democratic, rely on their internal power and oppose dependence on [foreign] powers", while the Iraqi speaker underscored that "we will not allow any country to use Iraq's territory to carry out hostile action against another country".
