Iran providing only military advice to Iraq, says Cmdr

TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iranian Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said the country only provides military advice to Iraq, and its support does not include other areas.

“As Supreme Leader and other military officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran have said our support to Iraq is only providing military advice,” he said, adding the country does not send ammunition neither to Syria nor to Iraq.

Iranian commanders and officials on several occasions have ruled out the military presence of country’s forces in the neighboring countries, including Iraq.
