Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman in reaction to the statements made by the US ambassador to Baghdad said that Khalilzad is advised to reflect the basic and fundamental weak points of the US foreign policy to the White House honestly if stability and tranquility are expected to be restored in Iraq. Spokesman of Iran’s foreign ministry Seyed Mohammad Ali Hosseini termed remarks made by the US ambassador to Baghdad, Zalmay Khalilzad as some kind of projection of the problems that reside in the US foreign policy and an escape from the realities of Iraq and reiterated that establishment and restoration of peace, stability and security in Iraq and reinvigoration of the central government of that country constitute the general strategy of the policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the face of Iraq.
Hosseini advised the US ambassador to Baghdad to reflect honestly, the basic and fundamental weak points of the US foreign policy to the White House at the threshold of the termination of his mission in Iraq.
“In which case, one can be hopeful about the return and restoration of stability and tranquility in Iraq”, Hosseini added.
Khalilzad had earlier accused Islamic Republic of Iran of having adopted a dual policy in the face of Iraq and stated that on the one hand Iran supports the government of Iraq and on the other extends support for the Iraqi militia and extremist groups.
