BAGHDAD, May 4 (KUNA) -- Iranian officials assured an Iraqi delegation that
visited Iran recently that Tehran backed the Iraqi government efforts in
clamping down on anti-state insurgents.
Ali Al-Adeeb, a member of a delegation of the Iraqi Coalition, that has
recently visited the Iranian capital, told KUNA on Sunday that the Iranian
officials assured the delegation about their keenness on "taking positive
steps for maintaining stability in Iraq and backing the state sovereignty and
combating the outlaws."
Al-Adeeb was speaking to KUNA after a meeting that included Prime Minister
Nouri Al-Maliki and the coalition's chief, Abdel Aziz Al-Hakim, at the
latter's office, late on Saturday. The delegation briefed the prime minister
and Al-Hakim about outcome of the talks held in Tehran.

proving Iranian involvement in some recent armed operations. (end)
