Navideshahed: If the provision is guaranteed, as many as 10 million Iranian pilgrims will be visiting Iraq annually.

This is according to Supreme Leader’s representative in Hajj and pilgrimage affairs talking about the outcomes of his trips to Iraq.

Hojat-ol-Islam Seyyed Ali Ghaziaskar visited Iraq earlier this week, heading a delegation of Hajj and pilgrimage officials.

During the visit, he met with great sources of emulation including grand Ayatollah Sistani, grand Ayatollah Fayyaz, Ayatollah Seyyed Mohammad Hakim, and grand Ayatollah Bashir Najafi.

Hojat-ol-Islam Ghaziaskar also held meetings with Iraqi officials including Nouri Maleki, Ebrahim Jafari and Seyyed Ammar Hakim.

He said Iranian pilgrims who travel to Iraq face different problems including lack of security. “In recent days, there have been several explosions in Iraq in which some clerics in Iranian pilgrim batches were martyred. There are also shortages in hygiene and welfare facilities. Of course, we should keep in mind that Iraq has been under occupation and is gradually getting out of it. We hope the problems will be resolved soon.”?

Hojat-ol-Islam Ghaziaskar went on to say that he is going to visit Iraq again a few months from now in order to put the agreement previously signed with Iraqi officials into operation.
