TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi said the US pull out from Iraq and Afghanistan helps restore regional security and stability.
"We are not concerned at all about the Americans' withdrawal from Afghanistan, Iraq and other regional states.
We emphasize that their presence triggers insecurity and war in our region," Mousavi told reporters in a press conference in Tehran on Monday.
"If the American forces leave our region and the Islamic states as soon as possible, the existing forces in these countries will arrive at a solution to establish peace and security via talks," he added.
Mousavi also referred to the strategic talks between Baghdad and Washington as an internal issue of Iraq, saying that Iran does not interfere in this issue but based on the approval of the Iraqi parliament and demand of the Iraqi people and government, withdrawal of the US forces should be completed as soon as possible.
The Iraqi parliament has passed and approved a plan to expel foreign troops from its soil on January 6, 2019, two days after the assassination of late Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, Deputy Chairman of al-Hashd al-Shaabi Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis and their companions in the US military terrorist attack, near Baghdad airport.
Baghdad-Washington strategic negotiations include the US military presence in Iraq, US military support for Iraq to fight against the ISIL remnants, commitment to protect foreign companies operating in Iraq, and hygienic help for the coronavirus patients.
Yet, the talks are legally binded by the parliament approval on the US military pullout and cannot delay to reverse the legislation legally as the government is duty-bound to comply with parliament approvals.
