  • Chief of IRGC Quds Force wraps up two days of talks in Iraq: Al-Alam

Brigadier General Esmaeil Qa’ani, the Commander of the Quds Force of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), has ended a two-day trip to neighboring Iraq, the Arabic-language Al-Alam news network reports.

Citing informed sources as saying, the Iranian news channel’s correspondent said Tuesday that the IRGC Quds Force’s chief had met with a number of Iraqi officials and senior figures besides leaders of political parties and movements in the Arab country.

The meeting, the report said, focused on the developments concerning bilateral relations between the two neighboring countries as well as regional issues of common interest.

Qa’ani has vowed to continue the path of martyr Lt. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, whose main goal was to drive American terrorists out of the region.

Qa’ani had visited Iraq twice in December 2020, when he met senior Iraqi officials, including Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, on a range of issues such as political ties and security cooperation between the two neighbors.
