Speaker Stresses Iran's Support for Iraq

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani assured that Iran will do its best to help resolve problems in the neighboring Iraq.

"The Islamic Iran will spare no efforts to help the Iraqi nation in removing the existing problems," Larijani said at a meeting with Head of the Supreme Iraqi Islamic Council (SIIC) Ammar al-Hakim here in Tehran Saturday night.

He also described Iranian nation and government as the main supporter of the Iraqi nation in all the ups and downs in the country's history.

Larijani underlined the necessity for unity and solidarity among the Iraqi political groups under the present conditions, and highlighted the responsibility of the country's political leaders for preventing divisive attitudes and approaches.

The Iranian parliament speaker further reminded that the Shiite religious leadership plays a significant role in leading Iraq out of the cumbersome conditions dominating the country at present.

During the meeting, Hakim thanked the Islamic Republic for its support for the Iraqi nation, and noted that Iran's aids and assistance have always been a factor in the establishment of peace and security in Iraq.

He also described consolidation of parliamentary ties between the two countries as "very important", and said that such relations can open new horizons in all areas of the two countries' friendly ties and cooperation.
