Speaking at a joint news conference with Iraqi Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein in Moscow on Wednesday, his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov said: "We are ready to provide Iraq with any Russian-made military products."
Lavrov stated that the Russian-Iraqi ties don’t rule out being on good terms with the West and neighboring countries.
He deemed the visit of Hussein as a boost to bilateral ties and the region’s security.
Last week, several missiles hit near the US embassy in the Green Zone and caused division among Iran-backed militias.
In the meantime, Iranian Quds Force commander Esmail Ghaani made a secret visit to Baghdad to limit tension and avoid a US retaliation.
Prominent pro-Iran militias such as Kataib Hezbollah and Asaib Ahl al-Haq slammed the party that struck the Green Zone last week, and didn’t claim responsibility for the attack.
Kataib Hezbollah spokesman Mohammed Mohi said some parties are trying to grant the US an excuse to attack.
The US shouldn’t be given any opportunity to tamper with the security again, Mohi warned.
MP Muhammad Karim accused the US of lacking seriousness in the recent decision to withdraw from Iraq. He further accused it of forging facts.
