The joint cooperation committee will be established after the month of Ramadan, he reiterated.

He also pointed to his visit to the historical site of Taq-e Kasra, saying Tehran Municipality and Iranian companies are ready to cooperate in restoration of Iraqi historical sites.

Tehran mayor's trip took place upon official invitation of his Iraqi counterpart Zekra Alwach aiming to promote cooperation between Tehran and Baghdad.

Earlier, addressing a meeting with Head of the 'National Wisdom Movement of Iraq' Ammar Hakim, Hanachi elaborated on potentials of Tehran Municipality and its affiliated companies in helping carrying out and implementing big urban projects in Baghdad.

Hanachi was picked by Tehran’s city council as the mayor of the city and his decree was authorized by the ministry of interior in late November. This is his first visit to Baghdad after assuming the office.

Iraq has repeatedly asked for Iran’s help in reconstructing the Arab country after years of war.

Early in March, Iraqi Deputy Foreign Minister Nazar al-Khairullah, in a meeting with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Morteza Sarmadi in Tehran, said Iran is playing a major role in the reconstruction of the Arab country, highlighting that the two countries’ ties are boundless.

He stressed that Iran would play an active role in the reconstruction of Iraq.
