Iran Reaffirms Support for Security of IraqAli Akbar Ahmadian made the comments in a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani during an official visit to Baghdad on Monday.
The top security official also expressed Iran’s interest in the continuation of cooperation with Iraq based on a joint security agreement signed last year to safeguard the security of both neighbors, Press TV reported.
In March 2023, Tehran and Baghdad signed a security agreement in the Iraqi capital, which includes coordination in protecting the common border between the two countries.
Under the agreement, the Iraqi government pledged to disarm anti-Iran terrorist and separatist groups based in the country's northern Kurdistan region and relocate them from the border areas.
During the Monday meeting, al-Sudani, for his part, voiced Iraq's commitment to the principles of good neighborliness and forging strong relations with countries in the region and across the world.
Stressing that Iraq will not compromise on its sovereignty and national security, al-Sudani said, “In line with the common interests of the people of the region, Iraq has made and will continue to make a lot of effort to maintain stability and achieve peace.”
