An American report reveals Al-Kazemi's message to the countries of the foreign tour
Shafaq News / The Iraqi government is trying hard to reduce tension in the country and maintain a balance between regional and international powers in order to embark on its reform plan.
In a report for the American "Al-Monitor" website, Ali Al - Mamouri, who also worked as a lecturer at the University of Tehran and trained in religious institutes in Iraq and Iran , wrote that Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, in an attempt to distance Iraq from the conflict between Iran and its regional and international opponents, plans for a tour that includes Iran and the states United, in addition to Saudi Arabia, which was postponed due to the illness of Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz. In this way, Al-Kazemi wishes to send a message to all the conflicting powers that the sovereignty of Iraq must be respected, and not bring their struggles over Iraq.
Since 2003, Iraq has turned into a major field of conflict between the various external powers, as Al Mamouri wrote, who considered that the election of Al-Kazemi was in fact a settlement between Iraqi political parties to reduce tension and find solutions to these external conflicts on Iraq.
So far, Al-Kazemi launched the strategic dialogue with the United States last June, and the second round of this dialogue will take place in Washington during Al-Kazemi's same visit to Washington soon.
According to Al-Maamouri, Al-Kazemi plans to reach arrangements with Iran and Saudi Arabia to end the use of any Iraqi space available for the dispute between them, and seeks in return to convert Iraq from an arena of conflict, to a place of investment and as a bridge for peace and cooperation.
While the Saudi station was postponed in Al-Kazemi’s tour after coordination and consultation between the two capitals, Baghdad and Riyadh, the Iraqi Prime Minister landed in Tehran where he met with senior Iranian officials, including the leader of the republic, Ali Khamenei.
Before arriving in Tehran, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif made a quick visit to Baghdad on July 19, where he met Al-Kazemi, President Barham Salih, and other senior officials, as well as leaders in the PMF, including Hadi al-Amiri. While in Baghdad, rocket-propelled grenades landed in the Green Zone in what Al-Maamouri described as an attack that carried messages from Iranian-backed militias to the Iraqi government that it must stop opposing Iranian demands that US forces should be removed from Iraq.
Al-Kazemi hopes to solve the problem of illegal militias through dialogue and negotiation, after what remains a problem that continues to be faced by successive Iraqi governments.
Al-Maamouri wrote that Al-Kazemi’s main priority is to reduce tensions in the country and convince all parties to respect the sovereignty of Iraq in order to start his plan for economic reform and prepare for early elections. Without this advanced step, no reform plan can be implemented, and the upcoming elections will have only a repetition of the problematic elections that took place in 2018.
According to "Al-Monitor" in its report, which was translated by Shafaq News, Al-Kazimi is trying to diversify the economic partners to include the move all the neighboring countries in addition to the major powers like the United States. For example, Iraq, the United States and the six Gulf states agreed last week to connect Iraq to the electrical network of the Gulf Cooperation Council states, i.e. Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain and the Sultanate of Oman, an agreement that won public support from the US State Department as a step It contributes to "peace, development and prosperity in the region."
It is known that Iraq imports electricity from Iran as part of an agreement that was renewed last June for two years.
Al-Monitor stated that the Iranian request to end the American military presence in Iraq depends on the Iraqi government’s ability to fully control the security situation, prevent the militias from firing rockets at foreign diplomatic missions, and stop their involvement in many illegal economic activities.
She pointed out that Al-Kazemi recently launched a campaign to impose full control of the border outlets with all of Iraq's neighbors, and started them at a border crossing in the Diyala governorate with Iran, then moved to Basra, where the borders are with Kuwait and Iran, which are ports that were previously under the control of militias and political parties, which enabled them to collect Millions of dollars through smuggling.
