Former MP Mishan Jabouri said that the victory of Barham Salih as president of the republic is a victory for Iran in Iraq.

"After its candidate Mohamed Halbusi won the presidency of parliament, Iran achieved another victory by winning the candidate of its historic ally the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, Barham Salih, as president," Jabouri said posted on his Twitter account.

The Iraqi parliament voted on Tuesday to name Barham Salih as president of Iraq after a controversial meeting with the KDP.

The choice of Salih, a candidate of the PUK, won after a second round of voting, in which he competed against KDP candidate Fuad Hussein.
