Larijani said adventurism of certain countries led to increase in terrorist activities in Syria because they believe they can bring democracy to that country with the help of artilleries and tanks. However, he added

, Iran is opposed to such a strategy and believes that violence will breed terrorism in that country.

He described Iraq as an important country in the region and said Iraq enjoyes a democratic system and enjoys great potentials to play a key role in the region.
The Majlis speaker also described Tehran-Baghdad cooperation as being multidimensional and multilateral and said Iran-Iraq parliamentary ties can lead to reinforcement of mutual interactions.
Underlining the need for mutual economic, cultural and parliamentary cooperation as a strategy to settle regional issues, Larijani said he had discussed different issues with his Iraqi counterpart.
Pointing to Iraq’s presidency of the Arab League and Iran’s chairmanship of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), he said Tehran and Baghdad have vast capacities for cooperation and influencing relations among regional countries.
Larijani left Iran for Iraq on Tuesday November 27 to hold talks with Iraqi officials regarding bilateral economic and political relations as well as international issues.
Heading a parliamentary delegation, he left Tehran for a three-day visit to Iraq upon an invitation by Iraqi Parliament Speaker Osama al-Nujaifi.
Iran assumed the rotating presidency of the NAM for a three-year term during the 16th NAM Summit that was held in the Iranian capital from August 26-31.
Last week, Larijani visited Turkey, Syria and Lebanon during a two-day regional tour in order to discuss issues ranging from bilateral cooperation to regional developments.
