“Iraq would respect Iranian people’s choice in the presidential election,” Hakim said in an exclusive interview with IRNA on Wednesday, adding that avoiding any intervention in other countries’ internal affairs is one of principle policies of his country.
The 12th Iranian presidential election will be held simultaneously in Iran and abroad on May 19, along with local elections of Islamic Councils of Cities and villages and Parliamentary mid-term election.
He reiterated that whoever in the presidential election could obtain the votes of the brotherly people of Iran, would be respected.
The Iraqi official also expressed hope that cooperation and ties between Iran and Iraq would be promoted and the mutual relations would also be expanded in line with the capacities of the two countries.
