Tehran, Oct 17, IRNA - Some 196 members of parliament condemned the US Congress for passing a bill to divide Iraq.
They said in a statement read out by member of Majlis Presiding Board Mousa Ghorbani that the nature of the global arrogance and its hegemonic approach emerge in different subjects so that the US Congress approval on dividing Iraq is in line with its imperialist spirit.
The statement refuted the US Congress action in making decision on destiny of other nations as being 'contrary to the international criteria'.
The MPs said that the Congress decision to divide Iraq runs counter to interest of the Muslim people of Iraq and that of the regional nations, adding that the Iraqi people will never agree to the US conspiracy.
The Iranian lawmakers said that the occupation powers should withdraw from Iraq as quickly as possible and it is the only way to restore peace and security to Iraq and the entire region.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to extend assistance to the Iraqi government to restore law and order."
It is expected that the Foreign Ministry would hold consultations with other countries especially the Islamic states to denounce the US Congress plan to interfere in internal affairs of Iraq.
