Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says Iraq must preserve territorial integrity and boost national unity

President Rouhani made remarks in a meeting with the head of the Iraqi National Alliance (INA), Ammar al-Hakim, in Tehran on Tuesday.

Iranian president stressed the importance of maintaining the Arab country’s national unity.

President Rouhani also said that foreign powers are still hatching divisive plots in Iraq in line with their own interests.  “Unfortunately, the deeds and words of certain big powers show that they are still after sowing discord among the Iraqi people.”

The Iranian president went onto say that those, who are against Iraq’s territorial integrity and unity, seek to create discord among Iraqi people of various ethnicities and faiths in order to prepare the ground for advancing their own plots.

Elsewhere in his remarks, President Rouhani hailed as very valuable the recent political and military achievements made by the Iraqi people, government and armed forces in fighting terrorism.

“The Iranian nation and government will stand by the oppressed people in the region, including Iraq and Syria, in this fight [against terrorism] and will spare no efforts in this regard.”


It is worthy to mention that the victory of Islamic Revolution under the wise leadership of Imam Khomeini changed the balance of power in the interest of the regional nations.


Imam through his speeches frequently denounced crimes which were being committed by the then Iraqi dictator Saddam against Iraqi people.


Following the downfall of Saddam regime in 2003, Iraqi people established a democratic governmental system which has maintained very amicable ties with Iran.
