Iraq demanded that the U.S. government backtrack on a decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital to avoid fueling terrorism, the Iraqi government said on Thursday.

"We caution against the dangerous repercussions of this decision on the stability of the region and the world," a government statement said.

"The U.S. administration has to backtrack on this decision to stop any dangerous escalation that would fuel extremism and create conditions favourable to terrorism," it said.
