Baghdad needs Tehran reconstruction expertise: Iraqi politician

Tehran, Dec 13, IRNA – Baghdad needs to rely on the experience possessed by Tehran in reconstructing its war-affected areas, the leader of the Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council said in a recent interview with the Persian-language Iran newspaper.

'Iraq needs to utilize the precious expertise possessed by Iran, especially those experiences acquired by Iran in the post-war years in the reconstruction area,' Humam Hamoudi said.

'The Islamic Republic of Iran from the very outset has been supportive of the democratic process in Iraq,' Hamoudi added.

'Iran as well has played a very important role in reconstructing Iraq and addressing issues related to supplying natural gas and electrical power to the country,' Hamoudi said.

The Iraqi politician went on to say that Iranian investors and businessmen are welcomed in the country.

Hamoudi then praised the positive role played in the fight against terrorists in Iraq by Commander of Iran's Quds Force General Qasem Soleimani, describing the achievement made by the Iranian General as a kind message to the people of Iraq.

'What General Soleimani did alongside the Iraqi Army and popular forces showed the kindness and love of the Iranian people for the people in Iraq,' he said.

'General Soleimani demonstrated that the Iranian people are standing by the Iraqis devotedly,' Hamoudi said.
