RNA - During the meeting in the Iraqi capital on Tuesday, Masjedi and Abdu Mahdi explored avenues for bolstering and reinvigorating mutual cooperation in political and economic areas.
During the meeting, the Iranian ambassador congratulated Abdul Mahdi on his election as Iraq's new prime minister.
Masjedi renewed Iran’s support for reconstruction of Iraq and helping that country to maintain its political and security stability.
Both sides also discussed bilateral ties as well as avenues for promoting them in the economic and commercial fields.
According to Fars News Agancy, Iraq's parliament elected the veteran Kurdish politician Barham Salih as the country's new president last week, a step toward forming a new government nearly five months after national elections.
Salih also named independent Shia candidate Adel Abdul Mahdi as prime minister-designate, after an inconclusive national election in May.
