US commander thanks Iran for contribution to stem Iraq violence

Baghdad, Nov 21, IRNA - US commander in Iraq thanked Iran on Wednesday for its contribution to stem violence in Iraq.

Lieutenant-General James James Dubik told reporters, "We are thankful for the commitment that Iran has made to reduce the flow of weapons and explosives coming into Iraq."

Dubik and US military spokesman Major-General Kevin Bergner said it was impossible to tell exactly how much difference those commitments had made.

"It's important here that the commitments that have been made start to see real progress that's statistically significant, that's measurable and that is sustained over time," Bergner told reporters.

Bergner said he hoped the latest round of talks, following meetings in May, July and August, would focus on the commitment to stop weapons from entering Iraq.
