Al-Manea indicated that “one of the pressures that the Iraqi government will exert on Jordan is to recover the smuggled money and the former regime’s cronies, and I do not think it will respond to these demands, and we rule out following up and recovering the smuggled money.”
He continued, “The port of Aqaba will be built on oil facilities with Iraqi money, and the oil will be sold to Jordan at a cheap price, and we are counting on the government going to China to build the Silk Road,” adding, “Al-Sudani has a government program to follow and timetables that forced him to visit Jordan.”
Al-Manea pointed out, “The form of the parliament session regarding the sovereignty of Iraq will be closed because of the presence of parties supporting the Turkish side and the Iranian side, and there are those who are against the interest of the country,” stressing that “the Sudanese is leaning on a solid political rock, which is the framework, its allies, and its government, the strongest Iraqi government since 2005.”
Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani visited the Jordanian capital, Amman, today, on an official visit that lasted for hours.

The House of Representatives adjourns its session and decides to hold another closed session tomorrow to discuss “preserving Iraq’s sovereignty.”
