Tehran, Iran, Jun. 01 – Iran’s former President Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said that the United States made a mistake in launching a war on Iraq in 2003 since it had helped to strengthen Tehran-Baghdad relations.

“America’s war on Iraq freed the Iraqi people from the evil rule of the Baathist regime and helped the strengthening of ties between the people of Iran and Iraq. This had a lot of benefit for Iran and Iraq and was in opposition to America’s objectives for the region, and the trend of future events will testify greater defeat for the occupiers and greater benefits for the people of Iraq”, Rafsanjani, who chairs the State Expediency Council, told a group of Iraqi students late Wednesday.

“If Iran and Iraq become united, the enemies will not be able to force anything against Islam in the region”, he said.

His comments were reported in the government-owned news agency Mehr.
