Leader in State of Law Coalition Kamal al-Saadi told AKnews: "We can't tell about the success of dialogues because this is related to the conviction of the Syrian side, but we rely too much on the understanding of the Syrian government about the requirements of justice against those who caused harm for the Iraqi people.
