Iran Majlis (parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani says the Iraqi nation will foil conspiracies by practicing national unity and avoiding political disputes.


“The vigilant and revolutionary people of Iraq will neutralize these plots [hatched by enemies] by steering clear of differences,” Larijani said in a meeting with the head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq Ammar al-Hakim in Tehran on Tuesday.

Larijani stressed the importance of strengthened unity among Iraqi tribes and ethnic groups.

He further lauded Tehran-Baghdad brotherly and friendly relations and expressed the Islamic Republic’s willingness to enhance cooperation with its neighbor.

Hakim, for his part, briefed Larijani on the latest developments in Iraq, and said the enemies’ plots will fail due to the finesse of Iraqi officials and the vigilance of Iraqi people.

Iraq has been the scene of anti-government demonstrations since December 23, 2012, when the bodyguards of Finance Minister Rafie al-Issawi were arrested on terrorism-related charges.

The demonstrators allege that the arrests were made on sectarian grounds and demand an end to anti-terrorism laws. However, Baghdad says it is up to the parliament to decide on abolishing those laws.
