Macron: Sudanese participation in ‘Baghdad 2’ conference Nasr, Iraq needs to get out of Iranian dependency

Shafaq News / French President Emmanuel Macron described the acceptance of Prime Minister Mohammed Shiaa al-Sudani at the “Baghdad 2” conference held in Jordan last Tuesday as a “victory for the regional agenda” aimed at reducing Iranian influence on Iraq, expressing his opinion that Iraq needs to get out of Iranian and oil dependence and that this takes not

This came in an interview with the Lebanese newspaper “Al-Nahar” and published in its issue issued on Friday.

“From the beginning, I am convinced that we can only find any solution to the problem of Lebanon, Iraq and Syria within the framework of a dialogue to reduce Iranian regional influence,” Macron said.

“The Iranians have not genuinely committed. Starting in 2019 and 2020, we saw that former Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi is willing to advance the work. On this basis, starting in 2020, we have developed a strategy with former President Barham Salih and Kazemi aimed at helping them strengthen Iraq’s sovereignty. “We need economic support in order to strengthen sovereignty with Iran at the conference table,” they told us about strengthening that sovereignty. And helping us create solutions based on huge energy projects helps us engage in the regional game that allows us to engage with Iran, but not just with Iran.”

“This is the agenda we have established since September 2020 when I made a second visit to Iraq and then in August 2021 when we held the Baghdad 1 conference,” he added. It is a long bilateral work through which we help Iraqis improve their security and strengthen our presence in Iraq through our projects in the energy and gas sector. In Baghdad 1, for the first time, we gathered on the table the Iranians, Turks, the Gulf countries and Jordanians. The dialogue has meaning and the side conversations are more important than official because they create a framework for dialogue between these countries and discussing how to restore the sovereignty of Iraq and reduce external influence in it.

“Many have done a lot, and in any case we avoided the worst as we enabled energy projects, financed some electricity interconnection projects with Jordan and maintained stability,” the French president said.

“Last summer witnessed a great danger and spent a lot of time with Iraqi officials over the phone trying to avoid the situation igniting,” Macron said. Then came the Iraqi-Sudanese prime minister backed by a majority known to be closer to the Iranians. When the Jordanian monarch visited me in September in Paris, I convinced him of the need to hold this conference because for the benefit of all of us, King Abdullah is at risk. We have exchanged numerous phone calls over the past weeks with the Sudanese prime minister.”

“For me if we hadn’t gathered this conference, the danger would have been that Iraq would move away from the regional agenda. With this framework we make alternatives available. Sudanese acceptance of this conference is a victory for this agenda, and holding this conference well is a victory, and the beginning of putting projects on the track is a victory.”

“Then we had a small-frame meeting without the Turks and Iranians and we started setting lines of action starting next month,” the French president also said.

He pointed out that “there are vital projects for Iraq in water, electricity, gas and economic development. We can help them and they need to get out of Iranian and oil dependency. And that won’t be resolved in a day.”سیاسة/ماكرون-مشاركة-السوداني-في-م-تمر-بغداد-2-نصر-والعراق-بحاجة-للخروج-من-التبعية-ال-يرانية
