Earlier, referring to his travel to the Iraqi cities which started on January 13, Zarif said “We are brothers" and his visit to Iraq, which as he noted has been the longest he paid to a country, indicated the two nations' willingness to have special relations.

He further described his trip to the Iraqi cities of Baghdad, Erbil, Sulaymaniyah, Karbala and Najaf and his meetings with the Iraqi officials as “good.”
