Top Iran, Iraq security officials discuss bilateral issues

TEHRAN, Jan. 18 (MNA) – Top security officials of Iran and Iraq have discussed relations between the two countries and their joint efforts to protect the security of both sides.

Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Akbar Ahmadian and Iraq’s National Security Advisor Qasim Mohammad Jalal al-Araji held talks on the phone on Wednesday.

They discussed the “historical and brotherly” ties between the two countries as well as joint efforts aimed at protecting their security.

Ahmadian said that any action by the Israeli regime against the Iranian people and government, originating from any country, will not be accepted.

Early on Tuesday, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps conducted missile attacks on Iraq and Syria. The attack in Iraq hit an Israeli spy agency’s base in Erbil, the capital of the Kurdistan region. The strike in Syria targeted terrorist gatherings in Idlib and elsewhere.

Iran said the strikes were in response to a terrorist attack in its southeastern city of Kerman, which killed nearly 100 people earlier this month. Also, it was a response to the recent Israeli assassinations of Iranian and Resistance commanders.
