Iran Reaffirms Commitment to Iraq's Security During Official Visit

Ali-Akbar Ahmadian, the Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), emphasized Iran's dedication to Iraq's security and stability during an official visit to the neighboring country.

Ahmadian, currently in Baghdad for a one-day visit, conveyed Iran's willingness to uphold cooperation with Iraq based on a joint security agreement signed last year, aiming to safeguard the security of both nations.

Signed on March 19, 2023, in Baghdad, the security agreement outlines coordination measures for protecting the shared border between Iran and Iraq. As part of the agreement, Iraq committed to disarming anti-Iran terrorist and separatist groups situated in the northern Kurdistan region and relocating them from border areas.

During the meeting with Ahmadian, Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani affirmed Iraq's commitment to fostering good neighborly relations and strengthening ties with regional and global counterparts.

Al-Sudani reiterated Iraq's steadfastness in safeguarding its sovereignty and national security, emphasizing the country's ongoing efforts to maintain stability and promote peace in the region.

Tensions between Iran and Iraq have persisted due to the presence of Kurdish terrorist groups, such as Komala, the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Kurdistan Free Life Party, and the Kurdistan Freedom Party, which have conducted numerous terrorist attacks on Iranian territory.

Iran has consistently warned Iraqi Kurdistan's authorities against harboring and supporting terrorist groups along its northwestern borders, vowing decisive action against any threats to Tehran's security.

In a recent development, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) targeted an Israeli espionage center in the Iraqi Kurdistan region with ballistic missiles. Additionally, Syrian bases housing terrorists involved in recent attacks in Iran were struck by the IRGC, demonstrating Iran's commitment to combating threats to its security.
