Monday, 28 May 2012

Ali Larijani said, “Iran is proud to support the jihadist approach of the great Hakim family (prominent Shiite leaders who resisted Saddam Hussein) in Iraq as well as the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement and Hamas Islamic movement. Tehran continues its support of Iraq as a brother country.” Larijani added, “Iraq’s democracy today is thanks to the role played by the Hakim family. This family had a brilliant role in anti-Saddam efforts during Iraq-Iran War.”
