On November 29, local time, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi met with visiting Iraqi Prime Minister Sudani in the capital Tehran, and then the two sides held a joint press conference.
Iranian President Rahim said that the Iraqi Prime Minister Sudani’s visit to Iran was “a turning point in the relationship between the two countries” and he hoped that the visit could “stabilize the friendly relationship between the two countries.” Lehi said that Iran and Iraq have “very good and close cooperation” in the fields of politics, economy, security, society, culture, science and technology, and hoped that the bilateral cooperation between the two countries will be further strengthened.
When referring to regional security and stability issues, Leahy emphasized that the presence of the US and other external forces will not bring security to the region, and the withdrawal of US troops from the region is conducive to maintaining regional peace, stability and security.
Iranian President Rahim: Regional security, peace and stability must be maintained by regional countries and militaries. The presence of foreign forces in the region will not create any security. This is a problem, as the United States has not brought security before in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as in other countries in the region.
Sudani said one of the main topics of the visit was to discuss security cooperation, stressing that the Iraqi government does not allow its own territory to be used to attack other countries. In addition, he revealed that the oil ministers of the two countries will also discuss energy cooperation
