Baghdad-Based Center Could Intensify Anti-Terror Cooperation

Russia, Iran, Syria and Iraq have immense potential for boosting counterterrorism cooperation through the four-party coordination center in Baghdad, Russian Ambassador to Iraq Maksim Maksimov told Sputnik on Monday.
"I am sure that after the serious blow to terrorists both in Syria and Iraq, the cooperation under the center's activities will be much in demand to counteract sleeper cells of the [self-styled] Islamic State that were created in the two countries, as well as transfer of terrorists to other states," he added.
Maksimov pointed out that the work under the framework of the four-party coordination center in Baghdad "has not only proved its value but also has significant potential for boosting counterterrorism cooperation."
The center for sharing and analysis of intelligence data on the Middle East situation, particularly on militants operating in the region, was established in Baghdad by the four states in 2015.
Some experts say Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi may be concerned over US President Donald Trump's standoff with Iran, Iraq's ally and partner. They note that Trump would hardly be able to destroy the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group if he does not cooperate with regional countries, such as Iran and Iraq, as well as Russia.
