SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – Iran/Tehran – Iraqi Prime Minister heading a delegation arrived in Tehran yesterday and met with Ayatollah Khamenei. In this meeting the Leader of the Islamic Republic said: Iraq is an important country in the region and if it is allowed to return to normal will play an important role. Ayatollah Khamenei thanked the previous government of Maleki for its efforts and stressed that Iran will support the government of Haidar Al-Ebadi. He added: We believe the ties between Iran and Iraq should get stronger day by day and Iran will give all types of help to Iraq. Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to security as the first priority of Iraq and said: As we have said before, we believe Iraqi people and government are capable of fighing and beating the terrorists and they do not need outsiders and other countries.
The Leader of the Islamic Republic considered Iraqi policy of preventing its territory to be used against Syrians as a wise act and stressed: The current situation in the region is the result of irresponsible behaviours of outside powers and some regional countries towards Syria which must be resisted. He pointed to those who claim to be fighting Da’esh and said: We do not believe these claims and it is our belief that the issue of Da’esh and terrorism must be cured by the countries of the region. In this meeting the Iraqi Prime Minister said: We are glad that after the formation of the new government our first official trip was to Iran, we thank your positions regarding Iraq as well as all the help the Islamic Republic giving to us to fight Da’esh and terrorists.
