Seems like the two Islamic countries are ready to become friendly neighbors again. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/4691615.stm Iran's President Mohammed Khatami has welcomed what he called a "turning point" in relations with Iraq. He said the current visit by Iraq's transitional PM Ibrahim Jaafari would help patch the wounds inflicted by ex-Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. Mr Jaafari is leading the highest-level Iraqi delegation to Iran in decades. Mr Khatami said the security of Iran and Iraq were closely linked and that Tehran would do everything to help restore Iraq's stability. "The visit of the Iraqi prime minister to Iran is a turning point in the historic relations between the two countries. It will allow us to heal the wounds and repair the damage caused by Saddam Hussein through joint co-operation," Mr Khatami said.
