Islamic Republic of Iran has always been an aide to Iraq and helped it to establish national sovereignty and free Iraq from Saddam Hussein's dictatorship; therefore, it is natural for it to have a role in reconstruction of Iraq as well, Sheikh Humam Hamoudi told the IRNA.
Saying that the role of Iran in defeating the Daesh terrorist is 'undeniable', he added that Iran has resisted against the toughest enemy — the Zionist regime — which is an honor.
He also congratulated the Supreme Leader, government and the people of Iran over the 39th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.
Sheikh Humam Hamoudi attended the ceremony held on the occasion at Iran's embassy along with some 1,000 other Iraqi figures and authorities on Sunday.
