Zarif, UN Envoy Discuss Region

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and UN special representative for Iraq Jan Kubis exchanged views on a host of issues, including the latest developments in the Middle East region.
In the meeting in Tehran on Sunday, Zarif and Kubis highlighted the importance of efforts to establish stability and security in Iraq, Tasnim News Agency reported.
The two sides stressed the need to continue the military campaign against the remnants of the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group after its collapse in the Arab country.
The diplomats also called for the participation of all political groups and factions in the upcoming parliamentary elections in Iraq.
IS militants made swift advances in northern and western Iraq over the summer of 2014, after capturing large areas of Syria.
But the timely support by Iran helped Syria and Iraq fight off the terrorists. In addition, the formation of military units by volunteers in Iraq, known as Popular Mobilization Units, blunted the edge of IS offensive and later made the terror group withdraw from much of the territories it had occupied.
