Enemies Failed to Sow Discord Between Iran and Iraq

“Enemies have been making considerable efforts to sow discord between the two nations, but thank God they have failed and will fail from now on too, because the main factors binding the Iranian and Iraqi nations are their faith in God and love for the household of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and [his grandson and the third Shia Imam] Imam Hussein (AS),” the Supreme Leader said. IRAN NEWS NATIONAL DESK Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in a meeting with a number of Iraqi Moukeb (roadside station) holders serving pilgrims of Imam Hussein who head to the holy Iraqi city of Karbala from across the world each year to commemorate Arba’een, which marks 40 days since the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein.
