KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Iraq’s national security advisor (NSA) says Daesh and Al-Qaeda militants have presented the international community a grossly flawed picture of Islam.

Afghan National Security Advisor (NSA) Hanif Atamr said and his Iraqi counterpart Salah Al-Fayaz had a telephonic discussion on issues of bilateral importance.

A statement from Atmar’s office said the Iraqi NSA, on behalf of his prime minister, thanked the Afghan security officials and people for rescuing Iraqi diplomats in a hard situation.

Last week, Daesh militants attacked the Iraq embassy in Kabul but the local security forces moved swiftly to evacuate Iraqi diplomats to safety.

Al-Fayaz, Iraqi NSA, said terrorist groups, particularly Daesh, were out to trample on human values, but political and military leaders of both countries would never give them the opportunity to succeed.

In the past few days, he added, the bravery and hospitality of the Afghan forces had been hogging the headlines in Iraqi media.

Iraq’s NSA said the IS and Al-Qaeda groups had given a false picture to the worldinfo-icon, all the Islamic countries are obliged to be able to eliminate these groups.

Atmar, on behalf of President Ghani and the people of Afghanistaninfo-icon, expressed his regrets over the attack on the embassy. He said Daesh had suffered losses in Nangarhar and Iraq’s Mosul. The militants targeted the embassy to avenge the reverses inflicted on the group.

The Iraqi official said their resolve had been strengthened further to develop academic, cultural and political cooperation with Afghanistan. He invited Atmar to visit Iraq, the statement concluded.
