Iran’s powerful Interior Minister said on Wednesday that the echo of Iran’s “Islamic revolution” could be heard in Iraq today, the state run news agency reported.

Speaking in the western city of Hamedan, Hojjat-ol-Islam Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi said, “That which is presently being heard in Baghdad and other Iraqi provinces is the echo of the [1979 Islamic] revolution and the messages of Imam Khomeini”.

Today, the people of Iraq and their elite have adopted our ideals and models as their own”, the Interior Minister said.

Pour-Mohammad served as Iran’s Deputy Intelligence Minister for years, running the country’s vast secret police operations abroad, including Iraq.
