“Astan Quds Razavi, as the major service provider for pilgrims of Imam Reza, together with Iraqi leaders, who bear great influence on Iraqi people, must do their best to bolster ties between Iran and Iraq as a means of standing against enemies and foiling their plots,” underlined Movahedi Mohassel.
