Iran has filed a lawsuit against Saddam Hussein for the 1980's war against Iran.
Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, who is visiting Baghdad, said:
"The two sides (Iran and Iraq), noting the crimes committed by Saddam Hussein's regime in its aggression against the people of Iraq, Iran and Kuwait, confirmed the need to seek justice for that.
To this end the Iranian Republic has passed on to the Foreign Ministry of Iraq a complaint against Saddam and his agents for examination by the Iraqi High Tribunal."
Mottaki gave Iran's support for Iraq's new government, and promised to help it with reconstruction projects.
