Iraq says it has trust in Iran's good faith, which has paved the pave for the expansion of bilateral relations in key areas. 
“The government in Tehran has always provided strong and sincere support to Baghdad, particularly in time of crisis,” Iraq's Defense Minister Erfan al-Hiyali said during a recent event at Iran's Embassy in Baghdad, IRNA reported on Monday. 
The meeting's agenda was to discuss measures to enhance defense and security cooperation ahead of the Arbaeen religious commemoration -- one of the largest annual religious gatherings of the Shia Muslim world – in the neighboring country. 
Al-Hiyali said his country will adopt tight security measures and mobilize its resources to ensure the event takes place without any unwanted incident.
