He explained that the increased involvement in the fight against terrorism does not mean an increase in working in Iraq, US forces, because the American public opinion and public opinion “in other places,” do not wish to do so.

He stressed that “this administration and this president are aware of the importance of Iraq and the role played in the region,” he continued, “we have given us assurances that the US support for Iraq will accelerate” to succeed Iraq achieve stability.

An invitation to the “lack of deviation”

He called on regional states not to use terrorist organizations to achieve gains in their disputes, saying that such use is that led to the rise of Daesh.

The challenge of democracy

The president of the Iraqi government to build a better Iraq can not be done only by listening to the views of opponents.

He said that the Iraqi government should be responsible for all people, “regardless of their beliefs” and demonstrate it in their dealings with citizens.

“We do not say that we have succeeded, but we put an outline.”

He said Abadi, that “would be a sad day if the people think that the dictatorship is better than democracy.”

He pointed out that under any circumstances the failure to provide protection and any way not to fight against corruption, “we have failed.”

Plan connector

And Iraq plan connector after its liberation, Abadi said, “We must win people to our side.”

He explained, “We need more funding to achieve stability and prosperity in Mosul. If we prove to people that their situation after the liberation of their areas will be better in terms of both stability and economic conditions, we have succeeded.”

He criticized some Iraqi politicians who refuse to conduct separation between political work and between the armed action, stressing that “when it is politically and take up arms, it means that you will use the weapon in politics.”

And dealing with the popular crowd after the liberation of the entire Iraqi territory Daesh said it should not be said to them, “Thank you and go back to your homes” in order not simply that the country might think their sacrifices are not estimated.

He stressed that it will be included for those who wish the popular crowd fighters to Iraqi forces and the disarming of those who do not want to join the army.

Washington – US President Donald Trump on Monday reiterated his administration’s commitment to the Strategic Framework Agreement, which regulates his country’s relations with Iraq in several areas, including military, political and economic.

Trump’s confirmation came during his meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi at the White House, according to a joint statement issued by the two sides, which was distributed to the media.

According to the statement, Trump stressed “continued US support for Iraq and its people in the common war of countries against terrorist gangs.”

He also stressed the commitment of the United States with Iraq today to a comprehensive partnership based on mutual respect in the light of the Iraqi-US Strategic Framework Agreement, which sets the framework for cooperation in the political, economic and cultural fields.

The agreement was signed in 2008 under the auspices of former US President George W. Bush and paved the way for the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq in late 2011 after eight years of occupation.

The agreement regulates relations between Iraq and the United States in various fields, especially military and economic.

There were fears that Trump would shun the agreement after repeating more than once during his election campaign that the United States should have obtained Iraqi oil in return for ousting Saddam Hussein in 2003.

The statement said that Trump “keen to host Abadi in the White House among the first heads and leaders of the world in appreciation of the role of Iraq and support for the close relationship between the American and Iraqi people and the importance of the relationship between the two governments.”

Trump and Abadi praised the level of military cooperation between Iraq and the United States in the war against Da’ash and the military campaign to liberate Mosul, stressing that “despite the ferocity of the enemy, we are confident of his defeat.”

The statement said the two sides agreed that “the long-term partnership between Iraq and the United States will continue to root out terrorism in Iraq and to strengthen Iraq’s military and other important areas.”

“In cooperation with our 68 member states of the International Coalition to Eliminate Struggle, the United States will continue to provide support and training to Iraqi forces to achieve decisive and lasting victory against terrorist gangs and reach an advanced level of capability and competence,” the joint statement said.

Abadi considered the relationship between the United States and Iraq “optional and not coercive,” in reference to the Baghdad government has chosen to sustain its relationship with Washington and was not forced to do so.

The Iraqi official stressed that what brings Baghdad together with Washington “is not only security cooperation but an economy, energy and culture,” expressing his desire to expand the bonds of cooperation between the two countries.

The Iraqi prime minister thanked Trump for lifting Iraq out of the list of countries barred from traveling to the United States. Abadi left for the United States on Sunday for an indefinite official visit at the official invitation of Trump, where he will also meet with US administration officials, including Vice President Mike Bens, Foreign Secretary Rex Tilerson, members of Congress and the Senate.

On Monday, Iraqi forces continued to advance control of the old city in the heart of the western city of Mosul, where thousands of civilians are surrounded by the Islamic state on the side of the city, the country’s last stronghold.

The restoration of control of the Old City was a major blow to the jihadists because of the al-Nouri Mosque, which saw the only public appearance of radical leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in July 2014, days after he announced his succession to the organization’s control areas in Iraq and Syria.

The old city, which lies in the heart of the Tigris River, which divides Mosul into two parts, has adjacent buildings and narrow streets that do not allow the passage of most of the military vehicles used by the security forces, making the battles more dangerous and difficult.

The operation is part of an operation launched on February 19 to restore the western side of Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city.

“The operations are continuing … fierce battles are taking place in the (old) area with buildings, markets and a narrow road where the enemy is holed up,” Brigadier Mahdi Abbas Abdullah of the rapid reaction force told AFP.

“The enemy has been broken and we are moving forward, God willing,” Brigadier General Abdullah said. “We will proceed from the iron bridge to the west,” he said, referring to the advance of troops into the depth of the old city.

He pointed to the presence of resistance is snipers holed up in high buildings.

“Yesterday there were fierce battles in which the enemy exhausted us and killed about 20 to 30 terrorists,” he said.

Iraqi forces have regained control of several neighborhoods and important sites, including the Nineveh Provincial Council (Mosul) and the Mosul Museum in recent days.

Meanwhile, UN humanitarian coordinator for Iraq Liz Grand warned that civilians were at high risk from fighting in residential areas.

“The civilians who fled told us that it was very difficult to enter or leave the old city,” Grand said. “Families fear the risk of being shot if they run away and risk dying if they survive.”

“This is terrible, hundreds of thousands of civilians are suffering from the blockade in very dangerous conditions.”

More than 180,000 displaced people

Despite the fighting on the western side of Mosul, escape is still possible for some residents.

“The number of displaced people since the start of the liberation of the (western) coast of Mosul has reached 181,000,” Jassim al-Jaf, the Iraqi minister for emigration and displaced persons, told AFP in a statement.

“Some 11,000 of them have been housed in shelter camps allocated to them by the ministry,” he said. “About 70,000 people have been accommodated with the host community in the eastern city of Mosul and other areas of the south.”

A large number of residents of the eastern side of Mosul received relatives and friends from the west of the city.

According to the United Nations, the number of displaced people could rise as Iraqi forces advance on the western side, which has regained about half of its neighborhoods and is trying to break the jihadist defenses in the old city, a strategic target in the battle.

“Relief organizations are preparing to receive between 300 and 320,000 additional civilians who are likely to flee Mosul in the coming weeks,” Grandi said.

“The ministry, in coordination with its partners, has the (currently) capacity to receive 100,000 new displaced persons,” the minister said in a statement.

“Humanitarian operations on the western side of Mosul are more complex and difficult than in the east,” Grandi said.

“The main difference is that thousands of families have decided to stay in their homes on the east side, while tens of thousands on the west side are fleeing,” she said.

“We have been preparing for Mosul for months, but the truth is that the magnitude of the crisis is beyond our capacity, but we will do our best to ensure that people are helped,” she said.

That number remains small compared to the estimated 750,000 people still estimated to be in the western neighborhoods of Mosul at the start of the operation.

It is estimated that the population of the city of Mosul was 2 million people before the jihadists control in June 2014.

With support from the Washington-led international coalition, Iraqi forces have managed to recover most of the areas controlled by jihadists in Iraq after their widespread offensive in 2014.

On Monday evening, Baghdad witnessed a car bomb attack that killed at least 15 people and wounded 33, according to the American website.
