EghtesadOnline: Iraqi Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri will arrive in Tehran on Today and is scheduled to meet Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
The Iraqi parliament speaker, who is also the head of the Islamic Inter-Parliamentary Union (IIPU), will also travel to Turkey and discuss bilateral cooperation and issues pertaining to the IIPU, reports ILNA.
The military preparations for the liberation of the northern Iraqi province of Nineveh from the Takfiri Daesh terrorists will be top on the agenda of Jabouri’s talks with Iranian and Turkish officials.
Last week, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced that the Iraqi army was engaged in the final stages of planning the latest operations aimed at ridding the Nineveh provincial capital city of Mosul from the Daesh terrorists, who overran the country’s second largest city in the summer of 2014.
Iran has been supporting Iraq in its fight against Daesh terrorists. On August 10, Abadi hailed the presence of Iranian military advisors in the country’s battle against Daesh terrorists and said the Iranian advisors are present in Iraq on Baghdad’s request.
The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by gruesome violence ever since Daesh terrorists mounted an offensive in June 2014. The militants have been committing vicious crimes against all ethnic and religious communities in the Arab country, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians.
The Iraqi army and fighters from the Popular Mobilization Units have been engaged in joint operations to retake militant-held regions.
