A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry called on all political sides in Iraq to remain calm and create a proper atmosphere for holding talks.
Speaking to reporters at his weekly news conference, Hossein Jaberi Ansari said Iran urges all Iraqi sides to reach a political understanding through negotiation.
Respecting law and maintaining the political achievements of the past two decades can guarantee stability, and help with the continuation of development and national unity, said Jaberi Ansari.
He hoped that the groundwork would be laid to fight against terrorism and corruption in Iraq, referring these as two very important questions for the country.
Serious talks among all Iraqi groups and sides are needed to combat those problems, he said, expressing Iran’s readiness to use all its abilities in order to pave the way for Iraqi talks.
