Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli underlined that Iran supports Iraq's unity and opposes foreign interference in that country.

"Iran's view on Iraq is based on unity, solidarity, territorial integrity, maintaining independence and non-interference of foreign countries in Iraq and finally promotion of security, peace and development there," Fazli told reporters in the western city of Sanandaj on Thursday, Fars News Agency reported. Stressing highly friendly relations with Iraq, he said, "Iran has not spared any effort to do everything it could for Iraq upon its demand."

In related remarks late October, Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Jaberi Ansari reassured Baghdad officials of Tehran's serious support for Iraq in the campaign against terrorist groups.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran will continue its all-out support for the Iraqi government and nation in confronting terrorism," Ansari said in a meeting with Iraqi Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Nazar Khairallah in Baghdad.

Noting that extremism and terrorism are seriously threatening the region and the world, he underscored the need for Iran and Iraq to cooperate in resolving the current crises and problems in the region and holding bilateral and multilateral meetings to this end. Khairallah referred to the common threats and interests and the strategic ties between the two countries, and thanked Iran for supporting Iraq.
