Iranian Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar has accused the United States of covertly supporting terrorist cells in Iraq.

Speaking at the monthly session of the Defense Diplomacy Committee, Mohammad Najjar dismissed the allegations made by the US that Iran is smuggling explosive devices into Iraq.

He blamed Washington for bomb attacks in the war-torn country, mainly in the capital, adding that intelligence suggests that the US government is supporting terrorist groups in Iraq.

The Iranian Defense Minister reiterated Iran's stance on Iraq, saying that the security of Iran depends on the security of Iraq and that stability and security in the country could help establish peace in the region.

" The only solution to the problem of instability in war-battered Iraq would be for the US to pull out its troops and withdraw support for terrorist groups, "said the Defense Minister.

He added the Iraqi people would achieve prosperity, security and progress with attempts of Nouri al-Maliki's government and in light of good relations with the neighboring countries.

Mohammad Najjar concluded that the Bush administration is not seeking peace and security in the Middle East since it will raise concern over its military presence in the region.
