Iraqi figure supports Iran’s proposal for nonaggression pact

Baghdad, Senior Iraqi political figure on Tuesday expressed its support for Iran's proposal to sign nonaggression pact with Persian Gulf littoral states.

Iran's proposal to leaders of the Persian Gulf states to sign a nonaggression pact is a good idea for resolution of regional problems, former Iraqi prime minister Ayad Aallawi said.

Ayad Allawi who is also head of the alWataniya (National Coalition) party made the remarks in an exclusive interview with Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

The Iraqi official said that undermining Iran will lead to weakening of the whole region and the world.

He expressed its support for Iran's proposal, adding that the people of region themselves should resolve the problems.

The regional countries should be able to defend themselves without reliance on foreign support, the Iraqi political figure added.

He described his recent meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif as fruitful, noting that all sides should do their best to find a solution to regional problems and deescalate tensions.
