Iran Should Stop Financial Support to Groups in Iraq: Experts
Azerbaijan, Baku, 8 March /corr. Trend R.Hafizoglu, D.Khatinoglu / Iran should stop financing pro-Iranian forces in Iraq in order to ensure development of democracy and re-establish stability in the Country. " Iran should cease financial support for the groups in Iraq to re-establish stability in the Country," Iraqi politician, Riad al-Gayim, reported to Trend .
According to the media sources, majority of the acts of terrorism in Iraq is committed by the special groups being trained in Iran and camps of 'Al-Kaida'.
According to the expert, despite that the recent visit of the Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to Iraq was considered as the beginning of settling many questions, he could not influence re-establishment of stability in Iraq. "Discussing the situation in Iraq, it needs to pay attention to Iran's wish to inoculate Islamic revolution with Iraq and finance several groups in the Country in this regard," al-Gayim reported to Trend via e-mail from Bagdad.
He considers that re-establishing stability in Iraq may be assessed as key factor that may cause stability in the whole Middle East. "Special Iranian groups continue functioning in Iraq. These forces have repeatedly confessed that they receive financial support from Iran," the expert said.
One of the reasons of Iran's interference is the problem of border which began after signing Al-Jazair Convention in 1975.
The expert considers that the border problem between the two countries arises from the inability of the Iraqi Government to weigh upon Iran and use international law and northern war which formerly Iraq implemented against Kurds.
He does not exclude that Iran can intrude into the territory of Iraq, using the factor that majority of Iraqi population are Shiite Muslims.
The Iranian politician Alirza Nurizadeh, who functions in London, reported to Trend by telephone that the war between Iraq and the USA and collapse of Saddam Hussein Government brought to increase of Iran's image in the region.
" Iran, using this opportunity, attempts to root its interest in the territory of Iraq. Iran supports terrorist organizations and wants paralyze the U.S. forces," Nurizadeh said. According to the Iranian politician, Iran will not allow establishment of peace in Baghdad because this step may be assessed as success of American incursion into Iraq.
Negotiations will be held between Iraq and the United States in order to restore security. According to the information spread by Iranian FarsNews on 5 March, officials from Teheran visited Baghdad to participate in the discussions between Iran, Iraq and the United States.
According to the information by Iranian MehrNews on 6 March, it was stated that the United States is not prepared for discussions.
Al-Jazir TV channel reported that explosion broke down in the trade centre as a result of which 130 people were injured and 55 died in Baghdad on 7 March. As the explosion was committed on the day of death of Prophet Mohammad, the explosion broke down on religious base and was financed by Iran, Iraqi official stated.
