The diplomat criticized the United States for what he described as not serious behaviour in the struggle against terrorism.
“The great successes that have been achieved in Iraq in the fight against terrorism are a result of efforts by the Iraqi authorities, the army, the people and the religious leader,” Abdollohian said.
He promised that Iran would do its utmost to promote the struggle against terrorism.
“At the request of Iraq’s legitimate government we have sent our military advisers to Baghdad,” he recalled.
