Reports And Analysis Of Iraq Jordan Breaking France Mohammed Shiaa Al-Sudani Baghdad Conference

Twilight News / The American Washington Institute considered in a report on Tuesday that the Baghdad-2 conference held in Jordan under the auspices of France is welcomed by the US administration because it enhances Iraqi engagement with “Arab neighbors”, but pointed out that only time will determine whether the agreements reached will be fruitful.

Noting that the Amman meeting comes just over a year after the first Baghdad conference held in August 2021, the report noted that changes in its venue, political leadership and regional context show a lot about the organizers’ concerns.

The US report, published in English and translated by Shafaq News, said that Paris and Baghdad organized a meeting last year in the Iraqi capital, with the aim of strengthening regional support for the besieged country, adding that the mobilization of such a large number of competing players in the same hall was considered a diplomatic success, pointing to the presence of leaders and representatives of Egypt, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Iran, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, what was described as one of the rare gatherings that can bring Iran and Arab countries together.

The report considered that the logic on which the summit initiative was based was the consensus agenda, which focuses on the importance of supporting Iraq at that difficult moment when Baghdad needed to reaffirm regional support for it in the war against ISIS, and in light of the season of the first parliamentary elections after months of demonstrations and political unrest.

However, the report considered that the other main goal of that event, which is to promote Iraq as a zone of cooperation between rival countries rather than a country targeted by interventions, has not yet been achieved.

Similarly, the report noted that the goal of Paris and Baghdad is to build on the success achieved at the first conference by expanding the number of issues on the agenda and seeking to launch regional cooperation on a variety of sectors including energy, while retaining Iraq as a major topic.

The report added that the decision to hold the conference in Amman reflects the greater expansion of the relations of the Kingdom of Jordan and its accounts with Iraq, explaining that through the security point of view, Jordan seeks to keep jihadist elements, armed Iranian proxies and other threats away from its eastern borders.

On the diplomatic front, Jordan wants to continue the breakthrough achieved with former Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi, who is coming with a major improvement in bilateral relations after years of post-Saddam Hussein’s post-Saddam relations, which ranged to hostility.

The report pointed out that Amman invested heavily in strengthening Al-Kazemi politically, and a number of forums were formed during his tenure, from the Baghdad conference to the Kingdom’s ongoing high-level meetings with Iraq and Egypt, adding that Al-Kazemi’s early exit raised concern among Jordanian officials, especially since his successor, Mohammed Shiaa al-Sudani was not known

According to the report, Amman’s policy towards Iraq is mainly summarized around one main goal: to improve the Jordanian economy, because the Kingdom has suffered a series of economic setbacks due to regional events over the past two decades, from the overthrow of Saddam Hussein’s regime to the Arab Spring and the Syrian civil war to the Corona epidemic.

The report pointed to a Jordanian effort to obtain cheap and guaranteed oil, by presenting Jordan itself as a corridor for the transit of Iraqi oil into the Red Sea through the planned Basra-Aqaba pipeline, noting that Baghdad and Amman have also launched a project to connect their electrical networks, while Jordan increasingly looks to Iraq as an export market.

Sudanese in the footsteps of al-Kademi?

The report considered that from the Iraqi point of view, the conference provides an important regional and international opportunity for the Sudanese, adding that the proximity of the Sudanese government to pro-Iran players is seen in the West and by some neighbors, with distrust, and therefore the Sudanese participation in the multilateral conference represents a means to reassure external backers.

In addition, Al-Sudani may see the conference as an occasion to build consensus with Arab neighbors on economic relations, security cooperation, and other issues, while this conference is an influential model for reaching out to Gulf states that are concerned about the threats posed by Iranian-backed Iraqi militias while hoping to pursue the many investment opportunities available.

While the report noted that Tehran does not show opposition to Sudani’s participation in the conference, it is because the existence of an internationally isolated Iraqi government does not serve Iran’s interests.

The report also considered that the conference is important for Al-Sudanese given his lack of experience in foreign policy, and it also provides an early example of Al-Sudani’s dedication to the legacy of Al-Kazemi, whose personality and achievements in foreign policy were highly appreciated by France and Jordan.

The report added that the frequency of holding the conference is well in line with the idea of building bridges with the Iraqi state regardless of who leads it.

conduciveFrance and regional stability

While noting that Iraq occupies a central position in French President Emmanuel Macron’s Middle East policy, the report explained that Paris provided significant military aid as the second largest contributor to Operation Solid Resolve and the NATO mission in Iraq, along with diplomatic and humanitarian support during the war against ISIS, noting that after the defeat of ISIS, France has engaged in stabilization efforts at a total

From the French point of view, the Baghdad Summit 2021 and the current Amman Conference reflect part of its approach of “conference diplomacy,” which contributes to regional stability and relations among leaders.

With Iraq a major intersection of regional actors such as Iran, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, the U.S. report says French officials say Iraq is the best starting point for easing tensions in the neighborhood, citing, for example, the currently tense relations between Baghdad and Ankara.

Iraq also shows how international challenges such as global warming can affect the Middle East, the report said.

The report concluded by noting that Paris treated the Baghdad-2 conference in Amman as a long-term dynamic beginning geared towards addressing global challenges regionally, not only in terms of climate change, but also on food security, desertification, energy security, public health emergencies, natural disasters and others.

On the important French role, the report stated that the Baghdad conference was among the few Middle Eastern issues mentioned in the joint statement issued after Macron’s meeting with US President Joe Biden in Washington earlier this month.

Acceptance of the United States so far

In 2021, the White House hailed the Baghdad conference as a “successful and groundbreaking regional summit,” the report said. The report added that US policymakers are pleased with the content and format of both events as they achieve a overarching goal of both Washington and Paris, which is to encourage greater Iraqi engagement with Arab neighbors.تقارير-وتحليلات/م-تمر-بغداد-سعادة-امريكية-واطم-نان-عربي-وامتحان-للسوداني-ولدبلوماسية-باريس
