He said the committee will seek to resolve the differences between the two sides, adding that the agreement which is the first of its kind also “reiterates the need for respecting the sanctity of the blood of the Iraqis from all religions, faiths and ethnicities and requires the two sides to refrain from launching negative propaganda against each other in all political and cultural activities and during Friday Prayers sermons.”
