Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, said on Sunday that Iran supports any opportunity for dialogue in Iraq in order to settle problems facing the Arab country.
Iraqi forces have won a string of swift territorial gains in Mosul in the fight against the Daesh terror group after months of slow progress. Government troops retook the eastern edge of a third bridge in Mosul Saturday and a cluster of buildings inside Mosul University.
The chairman of the Iranian Parliament's Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy and the Iraqi foreign minister have held talks on issues pertaining to Tehran-Baghdad relations and the latest developments in the Middle East, particularly Syria's nearly six-year crisis.
Iraqi special forces stormed the Mosul University complex in the city's northeast on Friday and pushed forward to reach another bridge across the Tigris river, beating Daesh terrorists further back, the military said.
