Speaking in a meeting with the President of the Iraqi Kurdistan Region Nechirvan Barzani on Friday, Ayatollah Dr Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi described the relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Iraq as strong and said, "Today, there are good conditions for strengthening relations in different sectors and in the direction of economic prosperity based on common historical and cultural grounds”.

Referring to the martyrdom of Haj Qasem Soleimani during the invasion of ISIL on Iraq and the Kurdistan Region, Ayatollah Raisi said, "It was as if Haj Qasem was defending one of Iran’s cities to eradicated ISIL with the cooperation of Iraqi forces”.

Emphasising that the security and stability of the region should be ensured by the countries of the region, the President said, "Countries that seek hegemony and have an arrogant temperament have never taken effective steps to solve the insecurity in the region, but fan the flames with their conspiracies”.

Ayatollah Raisi stated that the ground for physical insecurity is provided by the conspiracy of foreigners, adding, "The countries and nations of the region must be careful against the plots and soft influence of the hegemons and not allow them to interfere”.

In this meeting, the President of the Iraqi Kurdistan Region Nechirvan Barzani also congratulated Ayatollah Raisi on his election and said, "We are determined to have a new chapter in the economic, cultural and political relations between the Kurdistan Region as part of Iraq and Iran”.

Emphasising that we consider ourselves a part of Iran and the Islamic Revolution, Barzani said, "We hope that with the presence of the new government in Iran, existing relations will be developed in all fields, because there are many capabilities to strengthen and increase relations, especially in economic relations".

Emphasising that the Kurdistan Region is committed to the security of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Nechirvan Barzani stated, "We always had Iran by our side in all areas where we faced problems, and Martyr Haj Qasem Soleimani played a great role in ensuring the security of Iraq and the Region in dealing with the invasion of ISIL”.
