Deaths of Soleimani and Al-Mohandes insult Iraq's sovereignity
Tehran, Sep 27 (Prensa Latina) The president of the Iranian parliament, Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf, called the assassinations of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani and the deputy commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Unit, Abu Mahdi Al- Mohandes, 'an insult to Iraqi sovereignty.'
Ghalibaf pronounced himself this way during an interview with Iraqi Foreign Minister Fouad Hussein, who is on a two-day official visit to Iran.
These words alluded to the attack by the Pentagon on the Baghdad international airport on January 3rd, in which Soleimani, al-Mohandes and another group of combatants lost their lives.
In the opinion of the head of the Iranian deputies, the US intervention in the Middle East and the Washington-backed terrorists are a threat to the peace, stability and prosperity of Iraq and the region.
Both persons debated bilateral, regional and international issues.
Ghalibaf considered Tehran-Baghdad relations strategic, saying that the neighboring country plays a constructive, significant and influential role in the region.
The Iraqi Foreign Minister called for Iran's continued support for Iraq and stressed the need to strengthen bilateral relations.
