TEHRAN – An Iranian Foreign Ministry official has said that the Islamic Republic fully supports efforts meant to maintain Iraq’s territorial integrity and national sovereignty.
“It is the principled policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran to fully support Iraq’s unity, sovereignty, and territorial integrity,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said on Saturday in reference to recent political developments in Iraq which led to the nomination of Haider al-Abadi as Iraq’s new prime minister.
She described recent political developments in Iraq as a positive opportunity for the Arab country and expressed hope that all Iraqi political groups would play their effective and constructive role to facilitate the successful completion of the political process to form a new government.
Elsewhere in her remarks, Afkham expressed hope that the Iraqi people’s campaign against terrorism would lead to the eradication of “this evil and inhumane phenomenon.”
