Tehran, YJC. Politician says Iran is ready to provide Iraq with military equipment if the country makes request.

Deputy Foreign Minister of Iran in Arab and African Affairs said that Iran is willing to give military equipment to Iraq, Fars news agency reports.

Speaking in interview with Al-Alam, Hossein Amir Abdollahian stated "If Iraq makes a request, we will send the country military equipment within international regulations and through common, clear contracts.”

He then added "So far no request has been made. Iraq is powerful enough.”

Some resources had previously claimed that Iran has provided Iraq with military equipment, including unmanned aerial vehicles.

On the other hand, on Thursday the Iraqi PM Nouri Maliki said in his weekly TV address that "Iraq is today facing a fierce terrorist onslaught”, BBC reports.

Iraq's Prime Minister also rejected calls for a national salvation government to help counter the offensive by jihadist-led Sunni rebels.

Such calls represented a "coup against the constitution and an attempt to end the democratic experience", he warned.
