RNA - "Iran stood alongside Iraq firmly during the fight against ISIL," Hakim said during a meeting with Iranian Supreme Leader's top aide for international affairs Ali Akbar Velayati in Baghdad on Saturday.


He underlined that the sectarianism is fading away in Iraq in favor of an Iraqi national identity.


Hakim, meantime, hoped for a better future for Iraq with the help of Iran.


In relevant remarks in late May, Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jafari underlined that the Baghdad government will not pay any attention to US President Donald Trump's policies adopted against the Islamic Republic of Iran.


"Baghdad will not get involved in the anti-Tehran policies adopted by Washington," al-Jafari told reporters.


According to Fars News Agancy, the Iraqi foreign minister made the remarks when asked about Trump’s idea to form a new anti-Iran front and whether Iraq will ever participate in it.


Al-Jafari reiterated that Iraq will not enter any country’s policies against another one.


The Iraqi foreign minister underlined that many commonalities, including geography, history, social affairs and common interests have linked Iraq and Iran.
