Foreign Ministry spokesman, Mohammad-Ali Hosseini, said that Tehran's comprehensive plan to help resolve Iraqi crisis, presented to Istanbul conference, was not put for voting.
The Istanbul Expanded Meeting of Foreign Ministers of the Neighbouring Countries of Iraq was held in the Turkish city on November 3.
Foreign ministers of Iran, Jordan, Kuwait, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Bahrain participated in the meeting as well as the five permanent member states of the United Nations Security Council and the G8 member states.
The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was also present in the conference during which Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki introduced a plan to help ease the critical situation in Iraq.
"We officially presented comprehensive plan during the conference and asked others to put forward their ideas about it," Hosseini told reporters at his weekly press conference.
He stressed that the plan was "based on three security, political and economic dimensions."
"As for the security dimension, the plan calls for setting a timetable for withdrawal of occupiers," Hosseini said adding that until completion of the occupying forces withdrawal from Iraq, the Iraqi government should be empowered to administer state affairs and any military missions should require a request from the Iraqi government.
The proposed plan, calls for serious campaign against destructive activities of various terrorist groups acting in Iraq on a systematic basis, Hosseini said.
He added that the plan also calls for expulsion of the terrorist group from Iraq and taking necessary measures to control them to boost security in the border areas.
Referring to the presence of foreign companies in Iraq working in security activities claiming immunity despite various crimes that they committed, the plan stressed the necessity for making a "final decision on withdrawal of those companies particularly the Blackwater security company," Hosseini said.
"The plan calls for establishment of a fact-finding committee to bring those involved in killing defenseless people to International Criminal Court," Hosseini added.
As for the political aspect of Iran's proposed plan on Iraq, the spokesman said that it has called on all countries, the Iraqi neighbors in particular, "to reopen their embassies in that country." Referring to some disagreements between Iraqi political groups, Iran proposed in its plan that "the political concerns which created divisions among the Iraqi nation, such as fair distribution of oil wealth and the subject of Kirkuk, should be put off for two years," Hosseini said.
He added that the plan has also called for a public amnesty to be announced by the Iraqi government to release all prisoners, particularly, the children, under 18-year-old and over 60-year-old inmates who were arrested for opposing to the presence of the occupying forces in Iraq.
"The plan also calls for the political parties which have opted out of the Iraqi cabinet to join the government," Hosseini said.
He further referred to the plan as calling for the pardon of all military forces who refused to cooperate with terrorist groups perpetrating organized crimes in Iraq.
The plan also called on the forces to deliver their weapons to the government and called on the Iraqi government to use some of those forces in the country's army and its police force, Hosseini added.
As for the economic aspect of Iran's proposed plan on Iraq, the spokesman said it urged all countries inside and outside the region to help Iraqi government reconstruct the war-torn country and solve the problem of its refugees in other countries.
Hosseini said that the plan had also called on the Iraqi neighboring states "to help the country overcome its energy problems."
Hosseini added that the plan, which had been developed in the Cairo conference on Iraq, was widely discussed in Istanbul and was included in its final statement.
"Iran's proposed plan was the comprehensive one and others can also express their views about it," Hosseini added.
