A senior Iranian official said on Monday his country was ready to help confront ISIL members who have seized the Iraqi city of Ramadi, and that he was certain the city would be "liberated".
"If the Iraqi government officially asks the Islamic Republic of Iran ... to carry out any step that helps Iraq to confront (them)... then the Islamic Republic of Iran will meet this call," Ali Akbar Velayati, an advisor to Iran's supreme leader, told Reuters Television.
"I firmly believe that eventually Ramadi, like Tikrit, will be liberated from the grip of extremist terrorists," he said.
U.S. officials say they believe Iran, one of Iraq's main allies, has carried out air strikes against ISIL in Iraq.Last Mod: 18 Mayıs 2015, 15:07
