President Rouhani: Iran supporting Iraq's national unity

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Aug 5, IRNA -- President Hassan Rouhani said Iran is supporting national unity of Iraq.

Rouhani made the remarks Saturday in a meeting with Iraqi President Fouad Masoum.

Maintaining security and stability in Iraq is of importance for Iran since both countries are interconnected accordingly, he said.

President Rouhani pointed to road and railway development as an important point, saying it will result in boosting two countries relations.

Preserving territorial integrity in Iraq is vital for Iran since any change in geographical borders causes tensions in the region, he added.

Meanwhile, Masoum also pointed to Iran's stance toward Iraq as bringing growth in historical, cultural and ideological ties, saying grounds have been paved for developing cooperation between two countries.
