Baghdad Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh described Iraq’s regional role as remarkable, declaring that Iran would participate in the Baghdad summit of regional neighbors.
Khatibzadeh said in his weekly press conference today, Monday, about Tehran’s response to the invitation extended to it by Baghdad to participate in the security meeting of the regional neighbors: The meeting of the neighboring countries in Baghdad is not a new initiative, but our brothers in Baghdad have been following it for some time. The details of the meeting have not been announced yet, but we will certainly participate in it at an appropriate level.”
He referred to Iraq’s position in the region, adding that we consider Iraq’s regional role to be remarkable, and we have always sought to make this role prominent.
Regarding the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s procedures regarding the Arbaeen ceremony of Imam Hussein (peace be upon him), he said: During our visit to Iraq, they had talks, and our ambassador also held separate talks with Iraqi officials. Of course, Corona conditions have imposed restrictions on us. We should see if we can send even a limited number of people to participate in the forty marches or not? .
