Iran hails election of new Iraqi president

Iran hails election of new Iraqi president
IRAN  - Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs congratulated Barham Salih on being chosen Iraq’s new president, hoping for stronger brotherly ties between Tehran and Baghdad under new Iraqi government.

In a statement on Tuesday night, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said Iran welcomes the Iraqi parliament's move to elect Barham Salih as the Arab country's new president.

He also hoped that ties lead to developing friendship between the two countries and reinforcing cooperation in regional and international levels which can make economic welfare for the two nations.

The statement came a few hours after Iraq's parliament elected as president Kurdish politician Salih, who immediately named Adel Abdul Mahdi prime minister-designate, ending months of deadlock after a national election in May.

Saleh became Iraq's president after he failed to win the post in 2014. He is the third president of Iraq after the fall of Iraq's dictator Saddam Hussein.

In his first address after being elected, he said that he would be committed to constitutional law, preserve territorial integrity and independence of Iraq.
