伊朗说,外国势力应离开伊拉克 Iran Says Foreign Powers Should Leave Iraq

05 January, 2011

伊朗国营媒体报道,伊朗代理外交部长萨利希对伊拉克官员说,外国势力必须尽快离开伊拉克。

他星期三在巴格达与伊拉克外交部长兹巴里共同举行的新闻发布会上发表了这一评论。自从伊拉克新政府上个月宣誓就职以来,萨利希第一次访问伊拉克。

伊朗的伊斯兰共和国通讯社援引萨利希的话说,德黑兰支持伊拉克的“领土完整、稳定和独立”。他还说,伊拉克可以在没有外国部队的情况下保证国家的独立。

去年8月,美国正式结束了在伊拉克的作战使命。联军是在2003年波斯湾战争期间进驻巴格达后开始作战使命的。目前仍有大约5万名美军驻守在伊拉克。美国总统奥巴马说,所有美军将在今年年底前离开伊拉克。

Iran's state-run media says acting Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has told Iraqi officials that foreign powers must leave their country as soon as possible. 

He commented Wednesday during a Baghdad news conference with Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, in what is Salehi's first trip to Iraq since its new government was sworn in last month. 

Iran's IRNA news agency quotes Salehi as saying Tehran believes in Iraq's "territorial integrity, stability and independence." He also said Iraq could guarantee its independence without foreign forces. 

Last August, the U.S. formally ended a combat mission in Iraq that began when coalition forces moved into Baghdad during the 2003 Gulf War. About 50,000 U.S. troops remain in the country. U.S. President Barack Obama says all U.S. troops will leave Iraq by the end of this year.
