TEHRAN (FNA)- A German foreign ministry spokeswoman underlined the vital role Tehran has always played in the settlement of crises in the region, particularly in defending Iraq against the ISIL terrorists.
Speaking at a regular weekly government press briefing on Monday, Sawsan Chebli said that Iran plays a central role in tackling regional crises, especially when it comes to combating the ISIL.
She further added that Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has repeatedly stressed Iran’s importance in resolving the crises, notably in Syria and Iraq.
Last Tuesday, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei told the visiting Iraqi prime minister that Tehran will continue all-out support for his government, and slammed the trans-regional and some regional states for the current crisis in the region, stressing that Iran will not trust the so-called coalition against the ISIL terrorist group.
Speaking in a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar Al-Abadi, the Leader stressed that Iran will continue its “resolute support for the new Iraqi government”, and added, “The current situation in the region, including Iraq, is the product of the very irresponsible policies of the trans-regional powers and certain regional countries in Syria, and these policies should be confronted resolutely.”
