Denouncing all lies by Al-Qaeda, Mojahedin-e Khalq and Baathists (on Iran's interferences in Iraq), he said: "Iran is the strategic depth of Iraq in eastern borders. Iran prevents insurgents from entering Iraq and we appreciate these efforts."
The visit of the head of Iraqi parliament and a prominent Sunni figure, Mr. Mahmoud Al-Mashhadani, to Iran has a clear message that is based on deep historical, cultural, religious, social and security communalities of the two countries. No one can break up these commonalities. "Iran has a clear strategy in the region; this strategy is along with the desires of Iraqi leaders. Iran has a useful experience in security, social and economical issues, and we are trying to use these experiences in our country," Mr. Mashhadani said as he entered Iran. Denouncing all lies by Al-Qaeda, Mojahedin-e Khalq and Baathists (on Iran's interferences in Iraq), he said: "Iran is the strategic depth of Iraq in eastern borders. Iran prevents insurgents from entering Iraq and we appreciate these efforts." The comments of Mr. Mashhadani as a Sunni figure shows his understanding- as well as active Sunni groups- of undeniable facts about Iran's role and the future of two countries' relations. His position demonstrates the hatred of Sunnis toward the activities of Saddam Hussein and Baath party and that such activities won't take place again against Iran. Mr. Mashhadani also declared: "We should take lessons from the past and don't allow the enemies to divide us. Therefore, in Iraq, we believe we can achieve a big victory if our neighbors, Iran on top, help us in getting to our goals, and establishing security in Iraq in particular." It seems that this visit has also a clear message for Rajavi's gang, which is trying to divide Shiite and Sunnis. This message displays the image of an Iraq in which there's no place for MKO as the private army of Saddam and his remnants: "We have come to put an end to the double standards of the past. We have come to end the plots against the two countries." This visit can be considered as a turning point for the two countries, which can be useful in resolving the issues between the two sides. We should still wait to see the fruits of this move. However, as Mr. Mashhadani said upon his arrivals, this visit should be considered a strategic and useful one: "We should plan for our future. We are here to review our strategic policies, particularly those related to common interests and security issues. We are the children of the world's old civilization, and we should tell the world that Islam is the only religion that can solve all the problems".
