Abadi announces the return of Iraq

10/3/2018 12:00 am

Confirmed the existence of many investment opportunities in the country

Vivienne Walt / from Time magazine –  translation / Anis al – Saffar

as Prime Minister, Haider al – Abadi, the losses suffered by Iraq in the war against “Daesh” as up to $ 91 billion, pointing out that the world is not ready He said he had met with companies in Paris and Washington, told him that security did not concern them and that “they have another concern, namely red tape and bureaucracy” This comes at a time when he warned that there is nothing to Iraq in the conflict between the United States and Ran, and said: Our message to the two friendly countries: “We ask you not to describe your disputes on the land of Iraq, we need to support you together, but keep your differences outside Iraq.”

In order to know the plans of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to create a lasting peace and building a solid democracy, met by the magazine “Time” in Baghdad. During the dialogue, Abadi talked about the “epidemic” of corruption that plagued his country, what it would entail to prevent the “reawakening” of the re-aggregation of its remnants, and the region, such as the war in Syria and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

* Time magazine: How will you prevent “reaping” from regrouping and exploiting the chaos that pervades the region?

Abadi: One of the important faults that allowed the “urge” to make this rapid progress in our cities is the weakness of our communication with our citizens, because citizens should feel that it is an integral part of this country, and this is a fundamental issue. The task of the government is not reflected in the solution of religious, sectarian or ethnic problems. These are obsolete and I do not think that there is a government in our time capable of resolving all these differences. However, the government of this time can fulfill its promises to its citizens and see them before the law either. Time Magazine: Now that you have destroyed a military “advocate,” what makes you need US troops in Iraq? Should not they return to their homeland? I did not call for the presence of US forces in Iraq. All I said was that we did not want an incomplete mission. In Syria there are still safe havens for “Dahesh” and areas controlled by them, and some of these areas are adjacent to our borders. Do not forget that they tried to establish a state for them in the region, and I think they were not far from realizing their dream and their goal. Time Magazine: When will the need for the participation of the US military in this war disappear? We still need to complete a few things: rebuilding our armed forces, completing the task of training our security forces and supporting logistics and intelligence cooperation. We still need all these to make sure that the “da’ash” is completely destroyed, not only on the military level, but in its existence. There is a large number of terrorist cells that we continue to pursue. They are training suicide bombers and murderous murderers in order to continue their terrorist attacks. Time magazine: Today you have an American administration that is hostile to Iran while you are allied with Iran and you have relied on its support in the battle against “the da’ash”. How can you maintain the strength of these two alliances? There was a common factor: the terrorist organization represented a threat to the entire international community, as well as a threat to both Iran and the region. So there was a strategic interest as I think the United States and the other allies under its leadership. We do not want anyone to interfere in our affairs. This conflict between the United States and Iran is going back years and we do not care about it. Our message to them is: We hope you both not describe Mnazatkma on the land of Iraq, we need to Damkma together, but they were kept Khalavatkma outside Iraq. ” Time Magazine: I have baptized into the US Air Force , as baptized into the Iranian ground forces. We have provided us with the US Air Force and capabilities of the reconnaissance The chance to outdo the terrorists, thereby reducing the size of our casualties and enabling us to hit enemy headquarters and infrastructure, but the fighters on the ground are the ones we relied on in the liberation of the territories, and here comes the role of Iranian experience … I say frankly that we have received Iranian expertise because of their extensive experience in the war of the stick Data and other types of battles, and we reported from these experiences in Iraq and was appointed to us, along with the great firepower , which provided us with the United States and other allies. We have informed us the combination of these two forces. * Time Magazine: Is in Iraq carrying capacity another attack for “Daesh ” No country can afford such an attack because its costs will be terrible, both on the humanitarian side and on the material side, so our policy is focused on preventing and preventing it. People should feel that they are an integral part of their country and that they are citizens of it. . The other task is reconstruction. We paid the price twice: the first when it invaded “Iraq and Syria” and caused the displacement of millions of their cities, apart from killing many people. In the second we paid the price when we started to free our areas. The destruction is enormous, and we estimate it to be about $ 46 billion, let alone the housing problem, adding another $ 45 billion to homes and homes that were destroyed. We realize that the world is not willing to donate such money, so we have to try differently, and today we encourage investment. Iraq has many opportunities available. I met many companies in Paris and Washington. They told me that the problem of security does not worry them. Rather, their concern is focused on a different side, the red tape and the bureaucracy. * Time magazine: Everyone we met talked about one problem is corruption. How have you been able to deal effectively with this problem over the past years? Corruption epidemic is rampant. People call me to throw corrupt people behind bars, but where do I start? It’s a thorny process. Working in this field means conducting many investigations, and many of these investigations must be conducted abroad because the money is deposited there.


Abadi seems likely to lead the next Iraqi government

Victory over the Islamic state gives Abadi a better situation

BAGHDAD – The closer the Iraqi parliamentary elections are scheduled for May 12, the greater the speculation about who will take over as prime minister for four years to come.

Within the closed chambers, movement continues to support the chances of this candidate or that of the importance of the first government will lead Iraq in the post-Islamic state of terrorism and the stage of combating financial and administrative corruption.

It seems that the current Prime Minister Haider Abadi is the favorite to head the executive for a second term for his success in leading Iraq to regain one-third of its territory, which was controlled by the extremist organization since the summer of 2014.

But Abadi will face fierce competition from his allies within the Shi’ite majority who has been prime minister since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein’s regime in 1979-2003.

Although Abadi and Nuri al-Maliki, his predecessor in the presidency of the government (2006-2014), belong to the Islamic Dawa Party, they are running on two separate lists after the party failed to put them on top of the list as they sought to fill the post.

He considered the leader of the Dawa Party Jassim Mohammed Jaafar (Turkmani) that “Abadi is the most likely to fill the position for a second term through the list of victory that he heads.”

In the name of the list, Abadi tries to remind voters that he led the country to victory over the organization of the Islamic state through three-year military campaigns supported by the US-led coalition.

Jafar, the most prominent candidates in the list of the coalition victory, “inevitably priority for the slaves and the atmosphere of the general, taking a second term for many reasons, including his performance and achievements, calmness and acceptability that he enjoys internally and externally.”

But did not hide his concern about the possibility of repercussions because of the withdrawal of blocks from the coalition victory after a short time of accession.

The Fatah alliance joined the Abadi coalition and withdrew after only one day in January.

The Fatah alliance includes 18 political wings of the Popular Popular Forces (pro-government Shiite forces), most notably the Badr Organization led by Hadi al-Amiri and Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq, led by Qais al-Khazali, one of the most loyal factions of Iran.

The majority, backed by Tehran, have contributed to defeating the organization of the Islamic state but face charges of widespread abuses against Sunnis and Kurds in the north and west of the country, while the leaders deny any systematic violations.

The leader of the Islamic Dawa Party believes that there are three scenarios for the next government in Iraq.

Jaafar explained that the first scenario is the formation of a consensual government headed by Abadi and the second is the formation of a majority political government headed by Maliki, the last scenario is the arrival of a Shiite figure to power close to Saudi Arabia and the United States.

Other competitors

There are other names have the chances of varying degrees to reach the presidency of the Iraqi government, although it depends on the results of the elections, as experts see in the Iraqi issue.

“The traditional leaders like Maliki, will not run for the upcoming elections,” said political expert Ahmed al-Abyad, adding that “Maliki will seek to push candidates from his forehead to fill the post (prime minister).”

He favored the nomination of “former deputy speaker of the parliament Qusay al-Suhail or the current Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Mohammed Shiaa al-Sudani, as the coalition of the crowd (Fath) push Interior Minister Qassim al-Araji (belonging to the Badr bloc) as a rival candidate for slaves.”

The Iraqi prime minister has traditionally enjoyed the blessing of Iran, close to the Shiite rulers of Baghdad, as well as the blessing of the United States that toppled Saddam’s regime and occupied Iraq until late 2011.

White said that “the American influence will be the largest this time in the Iraqi elections and the nomination of the Prime Minister”

He added that “there is a significant decline in the role of Iran, especially as it was counting on the Shiite National Alliance as a dominant bloc, but the latter is no longer so, especially that the alliance of Sawsan, which is supported by the Sadrists (led by the strong cleric Moqtada al-Sadr) and the alliance Abadi far away from the Iranian mood and therefore did not Tehran is unique in its decision. “

Sunnis and Kurds are out of office

As has been the case for years, neither the Sunnis nor the Kurds will compete for the post of prime minister, but the two components look forward to holding the post as a moderate figure and fulfilling their demands.

“We are not rivals to our Shiite brothers for prime minister,” said Dhafer al-Ani, a deputy of the Iraqi Forces Alliance (the largest Sunni bloc with 53 seats out of 328).

“What matters to us is that the post is moderate and has a national vision and strengthens and solidifies the achievements that took place during this period and enables state institutions to play their role more widely.”

He ruled out focusing on one person ahead of the elections and said that “there are many candidates fit for prime minister, but it depends on the results of the elections and the votes they get, and this translates into understandings to be received later.”

“All that is issued by names is speculation, and no one can be certain until after the election results,” said MP Mohsen al-Saadoun, head of the Iraqi parliament’s legal committee.

“After many promises made during the past period, including the elimination of corruption, some have lost their chances,” he added.

“We have problems in the region that have not been resolved and our support for any bloc or candidate depends on its ability to implement the constitution and federal system in Iraq without selectivity and will not support any figure is unclear.”

Relations between Baghdad and Erbil are one of the most thorny issues facing the next Iraqi prime minister, who has deteriorated sharply since the September referendum in a referendum that Baghdad called unconstitutional and which the federal government called “punitive measures.”
