TEHRAN (IRNA) -- Minister of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhami said here on Sunday that Iranians regard Iraq as a united, cohesive, independent and democratic country peacefully co-existing with neighbors.
Shamkhani told reporters that Iran has naturally had a major role in the victory of the Iraqi people.
On Iraqi Defense Minister Hazem Shaalan's claims alleging that Iran is interfering in Iraq's affairs, Shamkhani said Iraqi defense minister should not be a parrot for others' literature.
He said that once formed, new Iraqi government announced that Baghdad's approach towards neighboring countries is not an aggressive approach -- something which pleased Tehran."
