Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Jafari said Iran expects more help from Iran in its fighting against ISIS, IRNA reported.
He made the remarks in a joint press conference with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif here on Sunday evening.
Concerning goals of his visit to Iran, Jafari said the visit is in direction of deepening common ties and happens in the framework of historical and geographical realities between the two countries.
Referring to strategic danger of Daesh as a common threat to Iran and Iraq, Jafari added that the threat makes both countries expand relations in the high level.
Jafari said given the long common border, there are deep ties between people of both countries.
Appreciating Iran for its humanitarian stance, Jafari said Iraq is in an exceptional situation now and we are glad that all Iraqi organizationas are mobilized against Daesh.
Religious authorities have done considerable efforts to mobilize people and groups to fight against ISIS, added Jafari.
The Iran's foreign minister, for his part, said that all the Iraqi people are fighting a common enemy.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran realized the danger of violence and extremism in Iraq since the very first day and stood by the Iraqi nation, and we will stand by the Iraqi people including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Arabs until the end of [their] fight against extremism and terror,” Zarif said.
He added that Iran calls for amicable ties with all regional countries and believes that Takfiri and extremist groups are threatening the entire region.
"Today, the world has understood the reality that the first country to rush to the help of the Iraqi people in the battle against extremism and terror was the Islamic Republic of Iran, which countered these common threats,” the Iranian minister said.
The Iraqi minister arrived in Iran on Sunday at the head of a delegation to attend an international conference on the World Against Extremism and Violence (WAVE) in Tehran.
The WAVE conference will be held on December 9 and 10 and will be attended by envoys from 40 countries.
The conference comes against the backdrop of the growing threat of violence and extremism across the Middle East, particularly the atrocities committed by ISIL Takfiri terrorists in Syria and Iraq.
