Baghdad, Sept 2, IRNA -- Iran, Russia, Iraq, and Syria security committee meeting was held at Baghdad on Saturday to facilitate intelligence coordination among these countries.
It has been three years that the quadrilateral security committee holds regular meetings to facilitate intelligence coordination among Iran, Russia, Iraq, and Syria to fight against Daesh (ISIS) in Iraq and Syria.
"Cooperation among the countries benefits all of the members, especially in security and intelligence activities against terrorism", said Deputy Head of International Affairs Department of the General Staff of the Armed Forces Brigadier General Ghadir Nezamipour on the sidelines of the meeting.
The members of this intelligence committee have followed up the activities of terrorists along Syria-Iraq borders and have prevented Daesh infiltration into Syria and Iraq through intelligence cooperation.
"Daesh spread hatred among the people of the world and was a threat against world peace and its defeat was not a win for Iraq only, but for all of the nations", said Iraqi Defense Minister Irfan al-Hayali in the meeting.
He added, "Iraqi people fought against Daesh by all means and spread the spirit of peace and amity through their sacrifices.'
