TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - “The fate of the region has to be decided by regional countries and all should be united against extremism and terrorism,” he said after a meeting with Leader of Iraqi Islamic Virtue Party Abdol-Hossein Mousavi.
“We have already stressed Iran’s readiness to support Iraq in its confrontation against terrorists and foreigners,” he said.
Iran is after good neighborliness in the region, Velayati continued.
Mousavi, for his part, appreciated Iran for fight against terrorism as well as confronting Iraqi and regional challenges.
The two countries share many commonalities. “Daesh terrorist attacks have put Iran and Iraq in the same path, since the attacks are against humanity and not only one nation,” the Iraqi official noted.
