UK documents only part of reality about Iran-Iraq war: MP

February 5, 2019

TEHRAN – Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Chairman Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh has said the British government’s recently declassified documents about Iraq’s imposed war against Iran in the 80s show only a small part of the whole reality.

“These documents show that European countries regard America accountable for continuation of regional conflicts and that there are still disagreements,” Falahatpisheh said, ISNA reported on Tuesday.

During the war, 36 countries supported Saddam Hussein to wage a war against Iran, he said, adding that 350 Western companies and 70 American ones armed the Iraqi dictator with material to build chemical weapons.
