Stressing the important of unity between Iraqi people, Rafsanjani said that the Iraqi Constitution can be a good covenant of establishing unity or accommodating diversity between various religious and political parties and ethnic minorities.
The top Iranian cleric also said that bringing peace and security to the region can pave the way for improving the Iraqi security condition.
Jafari, who acts as the head of Dawa Party, highlighted the Islamic Republic of Iran’s role in solving his country’s problems and said, “Iran seeks to establish peace, security and stability in the region.”
