Leader of the Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF) in Iraq, Falih Al-Fayyadh, wants to replicate the Iranian Revolutionary Guards model in Iraq, Iran's IRNA news agency reported.

"We are proud of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and the Islamic Revolution example, and today we consider it our duty to use the Iranian Revolutionary Guards' experience within the laws and characteristics of Iraq," Al-Fayyadh said during a meeting with the commander of the Revolutionary Guards, Hossein Salami, in the Iranian capital Tehran.

"We are your supporters in the resistance front and in the continuation of this great battle," he added.

For his part, Salami valued what he called the PMF's strategic role in defeating Daesh, and the achievement of security and stability in Iraq.

General Salami also hoped that the PMF will grow as a jihadist defensive force with grand principles and deep faith.
