President Hassan Rouhani said in a meeting with Iraqi Parliament Speaker Osama al-Nujaofi.
He said Tehran and Baghdad enjoy good capacities to expand relations in all sectors.
President said that the Middle East has witnessed years of war, extremism, sectarianism, violence and terrorism, stressing that many regional problems are rooted in foreign intervention.
Dr.Rouhani added that arrogant powers are fanning the flames of differences to maintain their dominance over the region.
Dr.Rouhani blamed hegemonic powers for trying to divide Shia and Sunni Muslims in the region.
“These powers constantly seek to cause rift among Shia and Sunni [Muslims] while different sects have peacefully coexisted in the region for many years,” the president stated.
What al-Qaeda group does under the name of Islam has not the least similarity with the logic of Islam and living style of Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him), he said.
The President called for solidarity and cooperation among regional nations, Iran and Iraq in particular, to thwart enemies’ plots.
President Rouhani regretted bombings and massacres in Syria and Iraq, saying, Iran and Iraq as victims of chemical weapons worry about atrocities taking place in Syria.
He warned against military intervention of any kind in Syria and called for continuation of efforts to avert a new war in the region.
Meanwhile, the President underlined the need for expansion of parliamentary cooperation between the two countries as a way to improve bilateral ties in all areas.
He voiced Iranian readiness to enhance ties with Iraq in different fields such as culture, security and exchange of pilgrims between the two countries.
Iraqi parliament speaker, for his part, wished success for the Iranian new government.
Al-Nujaifi hailed efforts made by the Iranian government to settle regional issues and restore peace and stability in the region.
