Prime Minister Haider al-Abbadi on Thursday apologized for an Iranian invitation to attend the swearing-in ceremony and inauguration of Iranian President Hassan Rowhani, citing the reason that President Fuad Masum will attend the ceremony as the representative of Iraq.

In a statement received by Alsumaria News, the news office said that the latter “received a phone call from the Speaker of the Iranian Shura Council Ali Larijani,” noting that Larijani “made during the call congratulations to Abadi on the occasion of the recent victories and the liberation of the city of Mosul.”

“The drying up of the sources of terrorism and its elimination is a source of great joy, and history will record this auspicious victory achieved in the era of Dr. Abbadi,” Larijani said, expressing “the support of the Islamic Republic of Iran for its war against terrorism and other fields” .

For his part, Abbadi thanked Larijani for “congratulations and praise,” noting that “these victories would not have been achieved without the unity of the Iraqi people, the army, police, popular mobilization and tribes against terrorism.”

Abadi praised the “position of the Islamic Republic of Iran in support of Iraq in its fight against terrorism,” stressing the need to “combine efforts to pursue the remaining terrorism, as well as continued cooperation in the economic and trade will inevitably reduce the impact of terrorism.”

The statement said that Larijani “invited the worshipers to attend the inauguration ceremony of the Iranian President Hassan Rowhani,” adding that Abadi “thanked Larijani for the invitation to attend the inauguration ceremony and wish success to Sheikh Rowhani in the completion of his presidential duties.”

The statement pointed out that Abadi “apologized for the presence that the President of the Republic, Dr. Fuad Masum, will attend the ceremony as a representative of Iraq.”

It is noteworthy that the Iranian Election Commission announced, on 20 May 2017, the progress of Hassan Rowhani on the candidate Ibrahim Rani and his victory under the presidency of Iran for a second term.
