Iran warns Iraq Against inspecting Planes

PressTV – Iran’s Ambassador to Baghdad Hassan Danaeifar has warned against the consequences of Iraq’s inspection of a Syria-bound Iranian cargo plane, saying Tehran would reciprocate the move in case of its recurrence.

On October 2, Iraq stopped and inspected a Damascus-bound Iran Air cargo plane from Tehran upon the illegal request of the US, but allowed it to continue as no prohibited items were found on board.

What Iraq did regarding the inspection of the planes bound for Syria is not in accordance with the diplomatic norms between the two countries and runs counter to the two states’ security agreements and air transportation treaty,” Danaeifar told reporters on Sunday.

The Iraqi government unfortunately forced the Iranian plane to land in order to be investigated, he said. “It found nothing.”
The Iranian ambassador dismissed the false claims by the US officials that Tehran uses Iraq’s airspace to send weapons to the Syrian government.

Iran calls on the Iraqi government to avoid the repetition of such moves against Iranian planes, which carry travelers to Syria, he said.

Many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the turmoil in Syria.
Damascus says ‘outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists’ are behind the unrest, but the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.
The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the insurgents are foreign nationals.
The United States has recently announced that it would allocate an additional $45 million to foreign-backed armed groups fighting against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government.
