In Iraq, for a three-day state visit to Iran’s first vice president, Eshaq Jahangiri met Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi on Wednesday (March 7th) in Baghdad.
During this tete-a-tete, he praised the strong relations between Iran and Iraq.
Haidar al-Abadi said there is a wide range of areas of agreement between the two countries and that disagreements are rare.
“History shows that Iran and Iraq are intertwined, especially through the culture and sharing of the same religion that is Islam,” said the head of the Iraqi government.
The two countries, he said, seek to consolidate bilateral relations economically, politically, culturally, commercially and in many other areas.
Eshaq Jahangiri, for his part, stressed the importance of Iraq in the region and the close relations of both countries while providing the guarantee that Iran will remain with Iraq during the reconstruction process.
