Iran’s Parliament Speaker stresses on developing economic ties with Iraq

Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s Parliament Speaker, Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf stressed on development and expansion of economic and trade relations with Iraq, emphasizing that the issue of assassination of General Qassem Soleimani by the US should be pursued powerfully.

Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf made the remarks during a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi in Tehran on Wednesday.

“Iraq is important for every single Iranian; however, the two countries had a special time during rule of the criminal Saddam in Iraq,” Ghalibaf said.

“But in the recent years, Iraq has hosted millions of Iranians during Arbaeen rallies and ceremonies and Iran has hosted millions of Iraqi pilgrims in Mashhad and Qom. The political, economic, and cultural relations between the two neighboring countries are being deepened at the highest levels,” he added.

“Expansion of trade and economic relations with Iraq, as a strategic partner of Iran, and other neighbors is a highest priority,” the speaker noted.

“The assassination of General Soleimani, Abu Mahdi al-Mohamdes, and their accompanying group at direct order of US president Donald Trump on January 3 is a stigma which is never to be effaced from the White House,” Ghalibaf insisted.

The US violated the national sovereignty of Iraq and impudently assassinated the ones that have engendered themselves to eradicate terrorism, so the issue should be pursued powerfully, he said.

“We believe as long as foreign forces are in the region, stability will not be restored,” the speaker went on to say.
