Plans to mar Iran-Iraq ties a failure: Ambassador

Baghdad, Feb 11, IRNA – Iran’s Ambassador in Baghdad Iraj Masjedi said on Sunday ill-wishers’ attempts to damage Iran-Iraq relations have failed.

Addressing a ceremony marking the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution late on Sunday, he added that it is a source of honor that the two countries' ties have gained momentum in all the fields over the past year.

The ceremony was attended by the Iraqi religious, ethnic and tribal leaders.

Recalling Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif visit to Iraq as well as President Rouhani’s upcoming trip to the country, Masjedi said, “Currently, Iran-Iraq relations are at excellent level.”

The two countries’ economic and trade relations are growing and will continue in the interest of the two nations, he said.

Despite the enemies’ plots, Iran is celebrating the 40th founding anniversary of a government based on religious democracy in the world’ contemporary history, Masjedi said.

Most of the enemies mobilized all their facilities so that the Iranian nation could not see the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, but all their efforts failed, as Iran is taking steps on the path of independence and progress stronger than any time, he said.

Condemning US unilateral exit from JCPOA, Masjedi said that the US president revealed that he does not value his commitments, as he not only violated his clear commitments under the JCPOA but also threatened other countries to follow the suit, but he will be humiliated like his predecessors.
