IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Jan 12, IRNA -- Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mihman-Parast said on Tuesday that Tehran is not interfering in domestic affairs of the neighboring Iraq.

Talking to reporters in his weekly press briefing, he said the Islamic Republic of Iran is interested in stability and security of Iraq and supports establishment of democratic government in that country.

He said that Iran-Afghanistan-Pakistan foreign ministers meeting will be held in Islamabad on Saturday to discuss Afghan issues.

On summoning Palestine’s charge d'affaires to the Foreign Ministry, Mihman-Parast said the move aimed to seek explanation about publishing an affront to Iran delivered by ringleader of the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO) in the website affiliated to Palestinian Authority.

He added that in the absence of Palestinian ambassador to Tehran, Palestine’s Charge d’Affaires Mohammad Johir was summoned to the Foreign Ministry on Monday.
