Baghdad, Jan. 15 – A member of Iraq’s interim parliament speaking on national television strongly criticized the Iranian regime for its meddling in Iraq.

Hossein Sadr, a candidate from the election list of the current interim-Prime Minister Ayad Allawi, aired his comments on the Al-Iraqi network Thursday, saying that Iran should not be allowed to meddle in Iraq’s internal affairs.

Referring to recent footage of an Iraqi terrorist leader who admitted to acting on Tehran’s orders, Sadr said, “The tape that was broadcast showed confessions that are worrisome; these confessions proved that in truth the Iranian regime and Syria are meddling here”.

“It is our right as a people to have our own freedoms, and to have peace and stability and to condemn such interferences. We condemn support given to terrorists and terrorist operations regardless of if they be from the Iranian regime or any other country,” Sadr added.

In comments directed at Iran, the Iraqi MP said, “I tell them from this platform that Iraqi Shiites are Arabs and Iraqi Shiites have their nationalistic values and Iraqi Shiites under no circumstances will fall under the influence of the Iranian regime”.

“We will not allow Iranian or non-Iranian interference in the internal affairs of Iraq or the Iraqi elections. Our neighbors should not curry political favor with Iraqi Shiites just because they share the same religion”, he said.

Sadr finished by saying, “We have a lot of proof for what we say but do not intend to reveal them all at present and are leaving them for later on. The proof show that certain neighbors are interfering in our elections and this is of concern to us”.
