(IraqiNews.com) Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firuzabadi confirmed that that his country will not send troops to Iraq, noting that the ISIS group invaded Iraq and advanced to the outskirts of Baghdad, hence it is necessary to liberate Tikrit so that the Iraqi forces will be able to liberate Mosul.

Hassan Firuzabadi said in a statement quoted by ‘Fars’ news agency and followed by IraqiNews.com, in response to a question about whether Iran would send military troops to Iraq, that “Tehran will not send troops to Iraq.”

He added, “The forces that protect any country and defend its interests must be secured,” adding that, “Sending armed forces to other countries under the pretext of defense or establishing the foundations of peace is unacceptable.”
