The Foreign Ministry spokesperson renewed Iran's commitment to respecting the sovereignty of Iraq, in comments on the Islamic Republic's stance regarding the upcoming parliamentary elections in the neighboring Arab country.
"Evidently, we have not and will not interfere in Iraqi internal affairs, and as a friendly and neighborly country, we have spared no effort to help [the Iraqis] whenever they needed our assistance," IRNA quoted Bahram Qasemi as saying in an interview with Al-Alam news network on Monday. Iraq's parliamentary elections, set for May 12, will be the first since the defeat of the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group.
"I believe that the vote will greatly contribute to the formation process of Iraq's new democracy and the establishment of a lasting security and sustainable economic development," Qasemi said.
