Accelerating withdrawal of US troops from Iraq to strengthen regional stability: Shamkhani

Tehran (ISNA) - Iran's secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani held talks with Iraq’s National Security Adviser Qassem al-Araji in Tehran on Monday.

During the meeting, Shamkhani explained the causes of instability in the region and called the United States the biggest cause of insecurity and organized terrorism.

“Accelerating the implementation of the Iraqi parliament's legislation on the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq will strengthen regional stability,” he added.

Stating that the assassination of the resistance commanders, martyrs Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Muhandis fully revealed and proved the role of the United States in strengthening Takfiri terrorism, he added, “Prosecution and punishment of the perpetrators of this terrorist crime is one of the priorities of the two countries' security cooperation, and we expect more from the Iraqi government in this regard”.

He also stressed the need to tackle organized crimes, including large arms and drug trafficking networks that target the security of the two countries.

He pointed to the creation of new security structures among the countries of the region with the aim of combating common security threats as a suitable way to establish stability and security in the region and announced Iran's readiness to form such structures.

Al-Araji, for his part, praised Iran's strategic and privileged role in creating stability and security in the region and fighting terrorism, stressing the need to continue and expand comprehensive cooperation between Iran and Iraq.
