|Iran says opposed to foreign military intervention in Iraq||
TEHRAN – An Iranian Foreign Ministry official has said that Tehran is opposed to foreign military intervention in Iraq.
“Iraq enjoys the required military capacity and preparedness and popular capabilities and motivation to deal with the elements behind terrorism and extremism,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said on Saturday.
She also rejected the news reports claiming that Iran has sent military forces to Iraq to help the Iraqi government deal with Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant insurgents.
“Every movement that complicates matters further is not to the benefit of Iraq and the region. And the Iraqi people and government comprised of various political and religious groups will deal with violent, extremist, and terrorist elements,” she said.
