TEHRAN, May 5 (Xinhua) -- Iran is ready to offer help to Iraq's defense system, a senior official of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) was quoted as saying by Press TV on Sunday.
The IRGC is prepared to provide the Iraqi defense forces with assistance and experience concerning the manufacture of various types of radars, command-and-control centers, ground-to-air missile systems, and electronic warfare equipment, said Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of IRGC's Aerospace Division.
Hajizadeh hailed the cooperation of the military forces of Iran and Iraq in the fight against the terrorists in Iraq.
Iran's support for Iraq during the fight against the Islamic State militants began at the earliest stage of the group's onslaught in response to Baghdad's request, Hajizadeh said.
On Thursday, Iran's Defense Minister Amir Hatami urged closer military cooperation with Iraq.
"Defense cooperation between Iran and Iraq will result in balance, peace, security and stability of the region," Hatami said.
