If it were not for Russia’s position on Syria, the Middle East region would be destroyed. This was stated by Iraq’s vice-president .
“I said it earlier and I repeat again: if not for the Russian position, the region would be completely destroyed, its map would be new and unusual …” – quotes al-Maliki RIA Novosti.
The politician noted that without the approach of Russia to the Syrian problem, which is different from the US approach, the regime in Syria would fall, which would lead to the activation of terrorists.
“The map of the region would change and eventually it would lead to the fall of Baghdad,” concluded the Iraqi vice president.
Earlier, al-Maliki called the victory in Mosul the merit of the national militia of the country.
