Iran stresses secure, stable Iraq: FM

Tehran, Jan 2, IRNA -- Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi said here Saturday that Iran calls for a secure and stable Iraq, stressing that presence of all Iraqi groups on the current political scene would play a decisive role in full administration of the country and withdrawal of foreigners.

In a meeting with Secretary General of the Iraqi Islamic Party Mohsen Abdul Hamid, Kharrazi added Iran enjoys a common stance with different Iraqi political parties.

"The Islamic Republic, despite (former Iraqi president) Saddam Hussein's oppressive rule, does not accept Iraq's occupation and is against it," he said.

He added delay in the Iraqi elections would increase insecurity in Iraq and stressed that the fate of that country urges active participation of all political parties and various groups in the country's political procedure.

During the meeting, the two sides discussed the latest developments in Iraq, particularly holding of elections in that country.

Saddam Hussein oppressed the Iraqi nation and inflicted damage on regional countries and Iran, Abdul Hamid said, adding but the United States attacked Iraq to destroy the country's infrastructure.

He said terrorist groups and Israel's Mossad intelligence service are currently causing many problems and trying to inflict damage on the Iraqi nation for the interest of strangers.
