Iraq could not defeat terrorists without Iran’s support: official

TEHRAN, Mar. 06 (MNA) – Iraqi Parliament Speaker Mohammed al-Halbusi appreciated Iran’s influential support for Baghdad for the fight against terrorism.

Iraq waged a war against terrorism on behalf of all the world and it managed to defeat terrorist groups by the efforts of its forces, al-Halbusi said Wednesday during a press conference with his Iranian counterpart here in Tehran, adding, “this would have not had happened without the support of Iran.”

Elsewhere, he said that Iraq condemns unilateral sanctions against the Iranian nation, noting that these sanctions oppose what is being said in the international arena.
