Shankali stressed that “the dialogue between the two parties will begin at the beginning of next year and under the auspices of an international representative of the United Nations, in view of the lack of trust between the two parties, which are already almost nonexistent among all political parties,” pointing out that “the urgent need for a binding dialogue To the parties and under the auspices of a third party in order to confirm all things clearly and explicitly so as not to repeat the crises in the future, especially since the parties have already signed more than one agreement, but was not committed to it.

“Prime Minister Haider Abadi, despite his obvious intransigence, is under international pressure, especially from the United States, as well as Germany and France, so the ball is now in his home if he wants to be prime minister of all of Iraq,” he said.

To Baghdad for this purpose, knowing that we are all against (the aliens), and we hope to hand over salaries to the beneficiaries but we want practical measures on the ground. ”
