Iran's Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi has exchanged views with senior Iraqi officials about the latest political and security developments in the region, including ways of fighting terrorism.
In a visit to the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Saturday, Alavi met with Iraq's Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jafari, Iraqi Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri, and Head of State of Law Coalition, Nouri al-Maliki.
In the meeting with Jafari, Alavi discussed the bilateral relations with the neighboring country and the regional and international developments. He also insisted on the necessity of an international coordination to eliminate the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group.
Regional and Iraqi political and security issues were also the themes of discussion between the Iranian minister and Maliki.
Earlier, Alavi and his accompanying delegation exchanged views with Jabouri regarding the necessity of the cooperation and coordination between the two countries.
The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by gruesome violence ever since Daesh terrorists mounted an offensive in June 2014. Iraqi army soldiers and fighters from allied Popular Mobilization Units are seeking to win back militant-held regions in joint operations.
