Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhani Told Iraqi foreign minister that Iran and other counter-terrorism countries will not allow Takfiri terrorism to be revived in the region.
In the meeting with visiting Fuad Hussein, Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhani considered any delay in implementing the law on the expelling of foreign troops from Iraq to the detriment of the region, increasing tensions and escalating the crisis.
He also stressed the need for the joint cooperation of the regional countries to reduce tensions and hold constructive talks to reduce the existing crises.
“The peace and security of Iraq today is the result of the authority of the Iraqi government, the epic struggle of the armed forces and the popular Resistance groups, therefore it must be protected,” Shamkhani was quoted as saying by Mehr news agency.
“The recent US actions to strengthen and expand the terrorist activities of ISIL and the brutal attack on the anti-terrorist forces of the Resistance, is the beginning of a new round of organized terrorism,” he said and stressed that Iran and other counter-terrorism countries will not allow Takfiri terrorism to be revived in the region.
For his part, Hussein said security and stability are the infrastructures of economic development and prosperity, explaining: “Security is the first priority for a country like Iraq, which has been engaged in the fight against terrorism and insecurity for years.”
“With the continuous efforts of the financial and banking sectors and the economic institutions of Iran and Iraq, some important obstacles have been removed and the debt repayment process will soon begin based on the model agreed between the two countries.”
The Iraqi minister arrived in Tehran on Saturday for a one-day visit. This marks the Iraqi diplomat’s second trip of the month to Tehran.
