Iran, Iraq priority is region: FM Zarif

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif announced in a tweet that the priority of Iran and Iraq is the region.

“Delighted to host senior Iraqi delegation headed by President @BarhamSalih. Constructive exchanges on next steps to work together towards regional peace & security. Strong, shared commitment to win-win in all neighborly relations. Our priority is our region,” Mr. Zarif wrote on his Twitter account.

The Iraqi president arrived in Tehran on Saturday morning and held separate meetings with his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, the secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhani, as well as the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei. Foreign Minister Zarif and President Rouhani were also present in Salih's meeting with the Leader of the Islamic Revolution.

His visit comes at a sensitive time when the US is pressuring regional countries to go along with Washington in “squeezing” Iran under new sanctions unveiled early this month.
