Speaking in his weekly press conference on Monday, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kan’ani briefed on the latest Iranian foreign policy developments and answered a number of questions put forward by the journalists.

Iraq’s stability and security important to the region

Speaking about the recent developments in Iraq and the storming of supporters of the Sadrist Movement led by Muqtada al-Sadr to the parliament building on Saturday, Kan’ani said, “Iraq is our big and important neighboring country. We monitor Iraq’s developments closely, and with concern. Iran stresses that Iraq’s stability and security are important to the region.”

“We consider the current developments, which seem to be caused by internal political differences, to be part of Iraq’s internal affairs, and we believe that Iraqi political movements, parties and organizations can deal with the current situation in a peaceful way and with mutual respect within the framework of the country’s constitution and legal mechanisms,” he added.

Iran ready to provide fuel to Lebanon

“As Lebanon’s friend and neighbor, we are more than ready to provide fuel to Beirut, provided an official request is made to us. Lebanon’s energy crisis is due to the Western crisis,” said Kan’ani regarding the fuel supply to Lebanon by Iran.
