Defense Coop. With Iraq

Iran is prepared to boost defense and military cooperation with Iraq and help the country strengthen its military prowess, Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan says.
Iran’s support for the Iraqi armed forces is part of the Islamic Republic’s defense and security strategies, Press TV quoted Dehqan as saying in a meeting with Iraqi Defense Minister Khaled al-Obeidi in Tehran on Monday.
He commended the recent victories by the Iraqi armed forces over Islamic State (IS) militants and expressed hope that the fight against terrorism would seriously continue in the country.
He emphasized that any military action in Iraq and Syria against terrorists must be carried out in coordination with the two countries’ governments.
Obeidi, for his part, said Iraq regards Iran’s support for its armed forces as a strategic imperative.
He also called for Iran’s cooperation in countering terrorism and corruption as well as the reconstruction of the war-torn country.
