Iraq’s health minister has thanked Tehran for meeting Baghdad’s needs in the health and medical treatment sectors in the earliest time.
Iraqi Health Minister Adila Hamoud says cooperation is going on between the health ministries of Iran and Iraq at the highest levels, adding health delegations keep travelling between the two countries.
In an interview with IRNA, Hamoud recalled Tehran’s role in helping Baghdad in critical times, and added Iranian health authorities have always stood by Iraq in difficult times.
She said Iran’s health ministry has spared no effort in meeting Iraq’s needs in the health, treatment and medical equipment sector, and renders the services that Baghdad asks for.
Back in April during a trip to Iraq by Iran’s Health Minister Hassan Qazizadeh Hashemi, the Iraqi official had also highlighted that whenever Iraq has a problem in critical times, especially in the war against ISIS, the first country it refers to for help is Iran, and that Mr. Hashemi acts to help in the shortest time possible.
