Iran: Islamic forces should be sent to Iraq just after occupation ends
Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi on Sunday said dispatch of forces to Iraq will get them involved in a critical situation there.
Addressing domestic and foreign reporters, he stressed that no Islamic or Arab state is willing to dispatch its forces to the war-torn Iraq under the present conditions. According to IRNA, he further urged the occupying forces to leave Iraq and to let the United Nations supervise the activities of foreign forces in that country.
Referring to the Iran-Iraq economic seminar being held in Tehran, Asefi said the seminar is to be attended by the Iraqi finance minister and deputy foreign minister as well as a group of Iraqi tradesmen. The presence of hundreds of Iraqi nationals along with Iranian officials and businessmen is an indication of the existing will for expansion of economic ties between the two countries, he reiterated.
