WASHINGTON (AFP) – A top Iraqi government adviser has admitted that Iran was meddling in his country’s affairs but warned that it would be a “fatal mistake” to launch military action against Iran.

“Iran is meddling into our internal affairs and other neighbors, too,” Iraqi national security adviser Muaffak al-Rubaie told reporters late Friday.

“Our neighbors are playing a very negative role,” he pointed out.

But Rubaie said that “it would be a fatal mistake to attack Iran.”

“The whole area would be in pain and whatever gains we’ve had in the past four years would go down,” he warned.
