Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Monday that Turkey was and would be on Iraq's side in all conditions.

Davutoglu made the remarks at a joint press conference with the visiting Iraqi Vice President Tariq al-Hashimi in the Turkish capital of Ankara.

Turkey has good relations with all groups in Iraq, said Davutoglu, adding he is confident that all groups in Iraq would come together to build their country.

Davutoglu said he discussed with al-Hashimi the post-election period in Iraq, adding Turkey views that the Iraqi parliament would possibly shape the next century of Iraq.

For his part, al-Hashimi said the relations between Iraq and Turkey are "very constructive, successful and very clean."

On his attitude towards the new Iraqi government, al-Hashimi said the most important thing in Iraq was to establish the new government according to the constitution.
