Joint Statement on VP’s Iraq Visit

Tehran and Baghdad issued a joint statement after the three-day visit of the first vice president to Iraq which was aimed at boosting relations between the two neighboring countries.      
The statement said Es’haq Jahangiri at the head of a high-ranking delegation and at the official invitation of Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi travelled to Iraq to attend the third meeting of the Iran-Iraq High Joint Commission in an effort to help strengthen the cordial relations between the two “friendly” and “brotherly” states, IRNA reported on late Wednesday.  
During his stay in Iraq, the vice president met with Iraqi President Fuad Masum, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, Speaker of Parliament Salim al-Jabouri, Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari and other top-level Iraqi officials. He also held meetings with some senior Shiite clerics.
In the meetings, a variety of issues, including bilateral relations and regional and international developments, were discussed.  
The two sides also stressed the necessity of making efforts to encourage regional countries’ “effective” and “positive” engagement to find “political, peaceful and national” solutions to the crises in the region without interfering in the internal affairs of other countries.
