Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday that the Iraqi parliament’s vote to remove American forces from the country is an important step that will contribute to strengthening security and stability in the region.
Rouhani stressed, during a phone call with the President of the Republic, Barham Salih, that Tehran and Baghdad should stand up to the American hostile measures and Washington’s interference.
The Iranian President stressed that the blood of the commander of the “Quds Force” Qassem Soleimani and Abu Al Mahdi Al Muhandis will lead to new developments in the region and will lead to the strengthening of relations between the Iraqi and Iranian peoples.
He added that Qassem Soleimani made great efforts to ensure the security of Iraq, Iran and the region, and continued: “Without him, Erbil would have fallen on that painful night of the ISIS attack on the city.”
For his part, Saleh said, according to the statement of the Iranian presidency, that Iraq and Iran face difficult conditions and great strife that we hope to get out of with their heads held high thanks to the wise management of the officials of the Islamic Republic so that we can establish security and stability in the region, stressing that the unity and friendship of the Iraqi and Iranian peoples enhance security and stability in the region.
