Reinforcement of Stability and Security in Iraq

Wednesday, January 2, 2008

Iran's deputy foreign minister has said that reinforcement of stability and security in Iraq is among priorities of the Islamic Republic.

"Enemies are unable to damage amicable ties between the Iranian and Iraqi nations. Iran has always supported the democratically elected Iraqi government and has urged that others follow the Islamic Republic's favorable view of the government and people of Iraq," Mohammad-Reza Baqeri said.
Pointing to recent remarks allegedly made by the Iraqi President, Jalal Talebani, on the 1975 Algiers Accord, he added that Talebani's office had already issued a statement to the effect that his words had been distorted.

Baqeri, who is Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs, said that Talebani himself had stressed the indisputable validity of the accord between the two neighbors. The Iraqi president stated that the interests of the two nations would be ensured by mutual respect for the accord.

The 1975 Algiers Accord is legal and has been duly validated by the United Nations, international legal institutions and the Iraqi and Iranian governments, the Iranian official noted, adding that it forms the basis for the stable border ties between the two countries.
