Turkey al-Faisal: Iraq has become an area for terrorism attraction

In a press conference at the United Royal services Institute in London yesterday, al-Faisal said “when the US and Britain invaded Iraq, the promise was to bring in peace and security altogether by the American and British forces.” He added “regrettably, this promise was not achieved.
