Meanwhile, the Iraqi army commander said that the Iraqi forces have a desirable status and can handle their affairs successfully.

Iraq has decided to make use of Iran's invaluable experiences and broaden cooperation with the Islamic Republic of Iran, he said.

A group of senior military officials have accompanied Iraqi chief of staff, who has come to Iran atop a high ranking Iraqi military delegation.

According to the report, Lieutenant General Zebari had also on Sunday had a meeting with the Commander of the IRGC Ground Forces Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour.

The Iranian commander welcomed the Iraqi delegation and expressed hope that the visit would prepare the ground for consolidation of ties between the two countries.

After withdrawal of foreign troops from Iraq, the country's Army is now in charge of national defense and security, he said.

He expressed hope that the Iraqi army would be successful to help restore law and order in the war devastated country of Iraq.

There are ample untapped political and cultural capacities in both countries, which must be utilized for expansion of all-out cooperation between Iran and Iraq, he said.

The Islamic Republic of Iran is pleased to witness that all Iraqi political wings play active role in their country's developments, he said.

'We hope to witness a secure Iraq,' underlined the Iranian commander.

Ill-wishers tried to lead Iran and Iraq to strained relations but the vigilant nations thwarted all plots, he said, adding that Iran spares no efforts to help Iraq.
