He added: “The Islamic Republic of Iran will stand by the Iraqi nation and government in fight against terrorism, as it has so far”.

Stressing development of cooperation between the two countries, especially in economic fields, Dr Rouhani said: “The post-JCPOA era is a good opportunity for fostering ties in all fields, especially in economy and we should use this opportunity and the parliaments of the two countries can facilitate this process”.

“The Iraqi parliament can guarantee and bolster national unity of the country through unity and integrated role in combating terrorism,” said President Rouhani, calling the Iraqi parliament the symbol of unity and brotherhood among all ethnic and religious groups.

Terrorism is a scourge for the whole region and the world, said Rouhani adding: “Unfortunately, some countries in the region are influenced by various factors, including Zionists, and are following a wrong path; this is despite the fact that nations want all countries to make attempts for the development and prosperity of the region”.

At the meeting, the visiting Iraqi Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri also stressed forging ties between the two countries, saying: “We should open new doors for cooperation through finding new ways”.

Development of economic relations is in line with mutual interests of the two countries and the region and the Parliament of Iraq supports this, said al-Jabouri.

On terrorism in Iraq, he said: “The Islamic Republic of Iran has always stood by the Iraqi nation and government and has played the most significant role in this fight”.

“Without a doubt, these victories have been achieved by unity and integrity of all Iraqi people, including the Iraqi army, popular forces and tribes and ethnicities,” he said.

He also said that settling issues in the region are possible through cooperation and unity among all countries of the region and continued: “Iran and Iraq should foster ties and cooperation to establish peace and security in Iraq and the whole region”.
