Iran summons Iraqi envoy

TASNIM – The Iranian Foreign Ministry summoned Iraq’s ambassador in Tehran in protest at the anti-Iran activities in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region.
The Iraqi ambassador was called in by the Iranian Foreign Ministry on Saturday in protest at an invitation given to the members of separatist groups to take part in an official meeting in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, as well as the continued activities of terrorist groups in that region.  
In the meeting at the Foreign Ministry, the Iraqi envoy was informed of Iran’s strong protest against the recent developments.
The director of the first department of the Persian Gulf at the Iranian Foreign Ministry reminded the Iraqi ambassador that the anti-Iran meeting in the KRG and the activities of terrorists in that region run counter to a recent security agreement between Tehran and Baghdad.
Iran and Iraq signed the bilateral agreement on security cooperation in March.
The agreement commits Iran and Iraq to safeguarding the principles of good neighborliness and protecting the common border.
