Iran, Iraq Seek Common Grounds

“Iran and Iraq enjoy amicable relations in political, economic and cultural fields. The two sides should make efforts to further expand their ties,” said Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi in a meeting with his Iraqi counterpart Hoshyar Zebari in the Indonesian island of Bali on Thursday on the sidelines of the 16th meeting of foreign ministers of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM).

The top Iranian diplomat called on Iraq to provide the growing number of visiting Iranian pilgrims with better amenities and resources during their tours of holy sites, IRNA reported.

The Iraqi foreign minister, for his part, said Tehran and Baghdad have cordial relations and added that he would pay an official visit to Iran in the near future.

Zebari noted that in his talks with senior Iranian officials, he would discuss ways to boost cooperation and to implement agreements already reached between the two countries.

Iran and Iraq are promoting ties in all fields thanks to the determination of senior officials of the two countries, he said.

The Iranian foreign minister also held a meeting Mohamed Bolkiah, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Brunei, on the sidelines of the NAM meeting.

Salehi said consultations between Iran and Brunei would play an effective role in adopting common and appropriate stance on regional and international developments.

He expressed Iran's readiness to provide technical and educational services to Brunei.

Bolkiah expressed his country's willingness in promoting relations with Iran and said Brunei is ready to cooperate with Iran in educational, academic and tourism fields.

The 16th ministerial meeting of the 118-member movement opened in Bali on Wednesday to discuss major global issues, including human rights, climate change, pandemics, food security and development.

The meeting will also commemorate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of NAM in Belgrade in former Yugoslavia.

At the end of the conference, Iran will take over its presidency for the next year. Egypt currently chairs the organization.
