a moment we'll get reaction from iran hasa bega standing by for us and to iran but 1st let's get to some our whole team who's in baghdad simona just tell us why is this visit so important. well it's the 1st time iran's foreign minister visits iraq after the assassination of an iranian general custom still in money on january 3rd and it's also the 1st time that he visits the country after the formation of the new government led by a prime minister more than me who is seen as somebody who is closer to the united states compared to his predecessor. the he's somebody who has emphasized the importance of iraqi sovereignty somebody who has also vowed to restrict weapons in the hands of the state and who has recently moved against armed groups like this which are perceived as being close to iran so the last few months have been rather turbulent for iran iraq relations and this visit is certainly aimed at
11:03 am
recalibrating relationship at making sure that iran's economic political and security interests are represented and it comes just a day ahead of most a visit to saudi arabia which will then be followed by a visit to tehran so certainly one of the main agenda items will be around preparing to visit perhaps even passing some messages that iraq's prime minister will take with him through some sort of shuttle diplomacy on the way to saudi arabia and of course the visit is also important because it just comes just days after the united nations issued a report looking into the assassination of some sort of money by a u.s. drone here in baghdad and ruling that assassination as a lawful source certainly foreign minister mohammad before also be discussing that with his iraqi counterparts and perhaps even pressing the iraqi government to take further action in disregard against the united states think that some on 14 in

11:05 am
a point of contention and tension maybe between the 2 countries but iran is also looking for moral support not the united nations special repertoire for actual judicial killings said that the cessation of general crossing for the money was a norful iran is looking for support and even maybe looking to iraq to take more action on that issue but also we have this vote coming up the united states wants to extend the arms embargo against iran and iran is looking to iraq as an ally as a friend for moral support against the united states and it puts iraq in a very difficult position but iran again is laying the groundwork here before the pm iraqi pm comes and visits that iran where there will be discussing the security issues and those regional issues and of course he's going to be visiting saudi arabia and that is seen as a rival regional rival iran take that i said back there live from tehran. european countries are threatening sanctions against foreign governments
