Iran's Majlis has held some certain foreign states accountable for instigating violence and recent series of terrorist attacks across Iraq.
In a statement released by National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Iran's Parliament (Majlis) on Wednesday, Iranian lawmakers criticized some "regional and foreign players" for instigating violence and destabilizing Iraq, IRNA reported.
"Some regional and foreign players have been discouraged from the success of some Iraqi political groups and factions in breaking the country's seven-month-long political deadlock on the appointment of the country's premier; therefore, they intensified their efforts to make the country more insecure," read the statement in part.
The countries that strengthen terrorism and terrorist activities should know that terrorism has no borders and its flames may engulf others as well, the statement added.
The Iranian lawmakers reiterated that some foreign states advocate expansion of terrorism across Iraq and called on the Iranian government to spare no efforts to restore security to the war-ravaged state.
The Majlis statement also warned that the dire security condition of Iraq would come at the expense of Iran's security, as the two states are neighbors.
The National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Majlis also condemned last night's bomb explosions in and around the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, which claimed the lives of 120 people and injured hundreds of others.
The war-torn country has been under almost daily attacks over the past weeks, resulting in the death and injury of many civilians and security forces.
The commission extended condolences to the Iraqi government, parliament and nation over Tuesday's deadly bomb attacks.
The commission's statement stressed the necessity of speeding up the formation of Iraqi government, expressing hope that the Iraqi parliamentarians would play an effective role in uniting the nation.
Allawi's Iraqiya alliance, which won 91 seats, former Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's Rule of Law coalition with 89 seats, Ammar Hakim's National Alliance with 71 seats, and the Kurdish Coalition with 57 seats are the four major political parties in the parliament that must reach a deal on a new government.
Many analysts believe that the formation of a national unity government that encompasses all political factions and is chosen by majority of Iraqis is the only way to ensure Iraq's stability
