Baghdad, Jul. 30 – Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said he had complained to Iranian leaders in a recent visit to Tehran that Iran continued to meddle in the affairs of its neighbour.

Speaking on Al-Iraqiya television on Thursday night, Zebari said, “I recently visited Iran with Prime Minister [Ibrahim al-Jaafari”>, where we discussed these issues with Iranian officials. In particular, we told them forthright that Iran was meddling in the internal affairs of Iraq, since this is our country and we expect our neighbours to cooperate with us”.

The Iraqi Foreign Minister’s comments came a day after United States Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld renewed his criticism of Iran and Syria for harbouring the financiers and organisers of the insurgency in Iraq, and for failing to clamp down on fighters crossing in through their borders.

On Wednesday, the Jordanian daily Al-Ghad published an article in which it revealed the role of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security (VEVAK) in Iraq.

“The infiltration of the Iranian regime’s intelligence agents in various Iraqi political, economic, and cultural issues is ongoing and each time stop the pointer of the Iraq’s political compass in Iran’s direction”, the daily wrote.
