London, Oct. 12 – Iraq’s former Interior Minister added his voice to a string of Iraqi, American, and British officials in condemning Iranian meddling in Iraq.

“Iran’s infiltration in Iraq has increased and Tehran has provided para-military [insurgents”> large-scale capabilities”, Falah al-Naqib told the London-based Arabic daily Asharq al-Awsat.

“Without any doubt, Iran has a role in attacks against the Iraqi people”, Naqib said, adding, “This country’s infiltration has increased and this is occurring through its large-scale providing of capabilities for certain insurgent groups”.

The former Iraqi Interior Minister said that there were either one or several countries that were providing financial support for the insurgency.

“Iran’s meddling in Iraq’s internal affairs is very clear and undeniable”, Naqib claimed. He said that Iraqis were well aware of Iran’s activities, adding that the majority of Iraqis, including those in southern Iraq, were suffering from Tehran’s activities.

He backed recent comments by Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, who had sharply criticised Iran’s meddling in Iraq.

In recent weeks a string of Iraqi figures, including Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari and former Defence Minister Hazem al-Shaalan, have accused Iran of meddling in Iraq. Former Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi recently warned that Tehran’s continuing meddling in Iraq’s internal affairs would “damage” both the Islamic Republic and the region. Allawi backed the Saudi position on Iran’s meddling in Iraq, and said, “This meddling [by Iran”> will be against Iran and the whole region”.

The Jordanian government has also given its backing to the Saudi statement on Iran’s meddling in Iraq.
