Oman « Quds Al-Arabi »: strategic context to reconsider the Prime Minister of Iraq, Haider al-Abadi in the Jordanian capital Amman on Sunday, more than evident not only in the light of the «complexities» the reality of the bilateral relationship between the two countries.
But also in the framework of regional ignition open to all the possibilities of co-operation, especially after joining Jordan and effectively led to the international coalition forces against al-Islamic state in Iraq, Syria and President al-Abadi to choose Oman without the rest of the Arab capitals to stop after the basic trip to Tehran.
Clearly can be seen Jordanian deep careful not to show exaggerated in the media at least visit the new Iraqi guest in parallel with the task that some observers believe it is the job the most prominent to visit Abadi They thanked Jordan and expressed appreciation for the role, not only political but «operational» also against the organization of the Islamic state.
According to the activist Salafi prominent Sheikh Mohammed Khalaf iron Abadi to thank Jordan comes to anything specific is probably linked to an agenda to participate in the targeting of the Mujahideen with the necessary warning of a new Jordanian political adventure in the arms of government Abadi, which is still «communal» par excellence and is fighting a war against the Sunnis in Iraq.
In the official center measurements do not place in the Advance interpretations of model is adopted by Sheikh iron, Valebadi came to Oman in a very prominent strong message «I’m not a sectarian» I want to practice openness to the Sunni neighborhood interaction with the support of the Sunni neighborhood to him in his battle against state regulation, a battle that caused Nouri al-Maliki to dismiss his predecessor.
For follow-up among the media there is justification «to atrophy» Jordan not to exaggerate the meaning of the celebration in the visiting media Abadi, despite at least accompany him and a high-level ministerial delegation and held the first two rounds of talks with his Jordanian counterpart Abdullah Eagles and the second with King Abdullah II.
Atrophy is referred to the lights on the facts and the facts cooperation «security and military» Jordan with Iraq’s internal situation on the ground at a time when US diplomatic reports some «reservations» raises the Jordanian cooperation with the movement of Iraqi businessmen prominent money.
Oman this sense want to welcome Balebadi but without exaggeration and without negligence on the agenda of its alliances and classical friendships specifically with a broad group of businessmen and leaders of the Sunni tribes in Anbar province, and especially those who expect from Amman to talk about them, and sometimes their name and their cases pending with the new government in Baghdad.
The relationship between the elite Anbar of clan elders and business layer in Anbar province and its environs in particular and between the Government of Abadi still «cool» relatively Jordan practically finds himself concerned with this issue when it comes to negotiations deep details the relationship between the two sides, where Oman welcomes the Baghdad government, a progress which is at the site of «force »this time because of the advanced position in the map of the international coalition against the enemy’s most prominent organization of the State Government to Abadi.
Very likely that Oman tend to test the intentions of the government towards Abadi stuck essential files from the oil pipeline project, including the carrier between the two countries and cooperation in the gas sector and oil prices as well as incentive areas of security cooperation, and most importantly the return of the central authority to protect the broad border between the two countries.
Jordanians have been pre-empted and across theirs Abdullah II boot and referring several times to the need to support Iraq and the assignment of the regular army, especially in the face of terrorism, and Oman have already been attempts to terrorism sought to cross from Iraq to Jordan.
Circles surrounding President Abadi talking about his keen to address all outstanding issues with Jordan, and open a new page to end disagreements stage President Nuri al-Maliki, which will not believe him Jordanians without their merchants and their sectors by up to three billion in the Central Bank of Iraq’s debt collection and without removing bureaucratic obstacles to the construction sector Jordanian and Iraqi trade in the market, especially disabilities that were laid down by the Maliki government in the past.
