Iran, Iraq forces to hold joint border exercises

Iranian and Iraqi central government forces will hold joint military exercises near their borders, Iran's state television reported on Sept. 30, as part of Tehran's effort to support Baghdad after the Kurdish independence referendum.

 State television quoted a military spokesman as saying the decision to hold the war games was taken at a meeting of Iranian military commanders which also "agreed on measures to establish border security and receive Iraqi forces that are to be stationed at border posts".
