TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) — Iraq’s Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki on Sunday tried to appease Iranian fears over a planned U.S.-Iraq security pact, saying his government would not allow Iraq to become a launching pad for an attack on its neighbor.
“Baghdad would not allow its soil to be used as a base to damage the security of the nieghboring countries, including Iran,” al-Maliki said, according to a report on Iran’s state-run news agency IRNA.
Al-Maliki is on a three-day visit to Tehran where he is meeting with top officials, including President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
