Iran, Iraq sign MoUs on judicial, legal cooperation

Iran’s Judiciary Chief Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei, has called for the implementation of the judicial and legal cooperation documents between Iran and Iraq.
Ejei made the remarks in a meeting with his Iraqi counterpart Faeq Zeidan, who has traveled to Iran, heading a high-ranking judicial delegation.
During this meeting, Ejei referred to the deep and broad commonalities and relations between the nations and governments of Iran and Iraq, stating, “The relations between Iran and Iraq are not just focused on neighborly issues, but are beyond that. The main root of these close and old connections is based on cultural and religious commonalities. The vast majority of Iranian people tend to travel to Iraq every year, as much as they can afford, to visit the holy shrines.”
Iran’s top Judiciary official went on to note that in recent years, both sides have seen extensive judicial, cultural, political, security and economic cooperation.
Additionally, the role of judicial institutions of the two countries in the development of these extensive connections is prominent and effective, Ejei said.
“In the past years, good memoranda of understanding and agreements have been concluded between the judicial branches of the two countries, some of which have been implemented, yet, the implementation of these understandings requires further measures,” Iran’s top Judiciary official highlighted, adding that the judicial bodies of the two countries must expand interaction between them and solve judicial needs as soon as possible through mutual understanding and via developing electronic facilities and using new technologies.”
Ejei stated that Iran believes that regardless of how much the relations between Iran and Iraq develop in the fields of culture, politics, economy and the fight against terrorism and corrupt agents and organizations, the judicial relations between them should be equally expanded.
“In the past, preliminary agreements have been signed between the judicial authorities of Iran and Iraq, but we are a little behind in the implementation of the provisions of these agreements and we must speed up the implementation process. We must try to implement the agreements reached during the 2020 visit of the then head of the Judiciary of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Iraq as quickly and fully as possible,” Ejei highlighted.
Zeidan, for his part, said that the Iraqi judicial branch at all levels and with all its sub-committees is making great efforts to consolidate positive and constructive relations with Iran.
At the end of the meeting, Ejei and Zeidan signed two memoranda of understanding (MoU) on comprehensive judicial and legal cooperation between Tehran and Baghdad.
