Iraqi minister lauds Tehran‘s constant support for Baghdad

The Islamic Republic of Iran is the only country that stands by the Iraqi people in all fields, and Iraq owes too much to the people and government of Iran, said Iraq’s visiting Minister of Agriculture Muhammad Karim Al-Khafaji.

He made the remarks in a meeting on Tuesday with his Iranian counterpart in the holy city of Mashhad, capital of the Khorasan Razavi Province, Mehr News agency reported.

The Khorasan Razavi Provincial Govenor was also present in their meeting.

The Iraqi minister thanked the Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei for paying special attention to the Iraqi people.

Referring to the fact that Iran and Iraq can strengthen bilateral cooperation in various fields, al-Khafaji noted, "Iran has made great progress in the field of agriculture and the sector is one of the cases in which we welcome Iranian investment."

The Iraqi Minister also said that Baghdad gives great importance to import its goods from Iran rather than other countries.

Al-Khafaji hoped that “at the end of this trip, an agreement will be signed between the two countries, which will be important and beneficial for both nations.”
