October 11, 2018

TEHRAN – Tehran’s Ambassador to Iraq, Iraj Masjedi, has lauded former Iraqi president Fuad Masum for making efforts to strengthen relationship between Iran and Iraq during his four year in office.

Masjedi attended Masum's residence late on Tuesday to thank his incessant endeavors and also reiterating Iran’s resolve to promote relations, especially in reconstructing Iraq, IRNA reported.

He also described Masum's stances vis-a-vis regional developments and ties with Iran during his presidential tenure as valuable and effective.

Iraq’s parliament elected the veteran Kurdish politician Barham Salih as the country's new president last week, a step toward forming a new government nearly five months after national elections.
