Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council says regional countries like Iraq and Afghanistan should not pay the price for the mistakes made by the US.
“Governments of the region should cooperate with complete alertness to counter common threats and provide stability and peace and [regional] nations should not have to pay the price for the errors made by the United States,” IRNA quoted Saeed Jalili as saying on Tuesday.
Jalili made the remarks in a meeting with Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah in Tehran, and stressed the expansion of Tehran-Muscat ties.
The Omani foreign minister also expressed his country’s will to expand regional interaction and relations with Tehran based on common viewpoints and interests.
In a different meeting with the deputy secretary of Iraq’s Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) Nechirvan Barzani, Jalili stressed the importance of forming a government in Iraq based on the will of the Iraqi people.
Jalili expressed hope that, in the near future, the Iraqi Parliament would manage to form an effective government with the cooperation of all groups.
Barzani for his part expressed gratitude for Iran’s friendly support for the Iraqi government and nation.
