TEHRAN, June 16 (Xinhua) -- Iran's Interim President Mohammad Mokhber made a phone call with Iraq's President Abdul Latif Rashid on Sunday, during which the two sides pledged to solidify economic cooperation, according to a statement from the Iranian presidency.

Mokhber said that promoting economic cooperation would lead to the improvement of political ties, noting that the two sides can further strengthen their economic ties by removing obstacles that hinder the cooperation between the countries' private sectors.

Mokhber also praised Iraq for its "effective, intelligent and honorable" actions in regional and international arenas, including with regard to the issue of Gaza.
