Iraqi president dismisses Iran’s interference in Baghdad’s affairs

IRNA – Iraqi President Fouad Massoum categorically dismissed the accusations that Iran interferes in his country’s internal affairs.

“We have good relations with Iran and Iran does not interfere in our affairs,” the Arabic-language Okaz newspaper quoted President Massoum as saying on Thursday.

He reiterated that Iran has provided Iraq with humanitarian and military contributions since the start of Mosul liberation operations.

“It has been our policy to not take unilateral stance against any other country in the region and what is important for us is Iraq’s internal conditions and restoration of security and stability to this country,” President Massoum added.

The Iraqi president underlined that his country is willing to develop friendly ties with Iran.
