Strategic Outcomes of Effort Made by Iraqi Shi’ite Parties to Achieve Political Agreement

2021/12/15 | interview, political, top news

Strategic Council Online- Interview: An expert on Iraqi commented on the recent meeting held among Shi’ite parties inside Iraq at Al-Ameri’s house and said:” It seems that timewise, as we distance from the election, Iraqi trends and political groups of the country cope with the results of the election better than ever in the past and go ahead towards political counselling to form the cabinet and select the heads of three powers i.e. President, Speaker of the Parliament and Prime Minister”.

Hossein Ajorloo in an interview with the site of Strategic Council on Foreign Relations stated that:” the output of the present status at Shi’ite household as the largest religious tribe inside Iraq has been as such: despite differences of opinion but in the meantime, there are also interacting issues for coordination. That’s why we witness increasing political counselling among these groups”.

He added:” Recent meeting among prominent Shi’ite groups held at Al-Ameri’s house in which Muqtada Al-Sadr was also attending indicates the willingness of different political parties involved to reach a common point”.

According to the expert another invitation to hold a (similar) meeting in Najaf hosted by Muqtada Al-Sadr confirms the effort made by Shi’ite political groups for integration despite the contradicting news circulated about the productivity of the first meeting”.

Having referred to the recent election held in Iraq and its results, Ajorloo said:” Concerning its results, particularly in the Shi’ite household, some groups like Sadr Movement that was somehow the victor of the election, was happy and satisfied with the results but most of prominent political currents like State of Law led by Nouri Al-Maliki, Fath coalition led by Haadi Al-Ameri and groups affiliated to Hashd -ol – Sha’abi are dissatisfied with the results of the election”.

According to the expert the outcome of such a circumstance has been political struggles over the results of the election and even in some cases, it led to street protests. In fact, although the Iraqi Election Commission has announced the final results of the election but the protests against the results still continues”.

Ajorloo stated in the meantime, due to extensive disputes especially the dispute between Sadr Movement as the victor of the election and State of Law led by Nouri Al-Maliki as the second victor of the election, there is no thorough integration among Shi’ite groups. He said:” This is the case while holding meetings like this can minimize the political challenges ahead of Iraq on selecting Prime Minister and prevent the potential security tensions among parties”.

The expert on Iraq continued to say:” Attention must be paid that apart from Shi’ite household, there are also political differences among Kurdish groups and parties as well as Sunni household which has made achieving a far reaching agreement to some extent difficult”.

Having stated that it seems political and security stability in Iraq is something demanded by the majority of Iraqi fractions and parties, he explained:” that’s why the majority of political groups take steps towards this direction to achieve stability”.

On Iran’s role in Iraqi equations, he said:” regional countries, particularly the Islamic Republic of Iran are also looking for stability in Iraq. On the opposite side, some of external powers like the United States of America are looking for removal of some political groups, especially those who are close to the Resistance from Iraqi political scene. Going ahead with such an objective will bring no result but spiraling instability in Iraq”.

The expert explained about the present strategy of Iran and Resistance trend on the Iraqi issue and said:” in such a circumstance, both the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Resistance groups should adopt a smart strategy to support the interaction approaches and intra-Shi’ite as well as intra-Iraqi dialogues and to stand against destabilizing policies and attitudes of the United States of America and her allies in Iraq”.

Ajorloo said the result of whatever agreement among Shi’ite groups will lead to political and security stability in Iraq, if it serves the national interests of the country. Any divergence the result of which is instability as well as security and political tension serve the whims of those players whose interests are in an unstable and insecure Iraq”.

The expert of West Asia affairs referred to the involvement of Shi’ite groups followed by all Iraqi groups in interaction approaches continued to say:” While following up their rights emanated from the election, these currents can contribute the internal integration and can prevent the movements and instigations of destabilizing players in Iraq like the United States and some Arab countries. In line with this, the Islamic Republic of Iran as a country whose stability takes direct effect from the Iraqi stability can assist Iraqi groups to maintain their independence and to reach further integration”.

Claims of a US Arms Embargo against Zionist Regime Reveal America’s Deception

Goals of Blinken’s Recent Trip to Saudi Arabia

Strategic Council Online—Interview: A researcher of Saudi affairs said that US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken arrived in Riyadh recently during a regional trip and had consultations with the Riyadh officials. It seems that one of the items on the agenda between Saudi Arabia and America, in addition to the Gaza war, is the process of normalizing relations between the Israeli regime and the Arab kingdom.

Dr. Kharrazi's response to the new US position on Iran's nuclear program:
It Was America That Abandoned Nuclear Diplomacy/ Iran Also Considers Diplomacy the Best Approach

Strategic Council Online: The President of the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations stated: “The US State Department spokesperson, after my interview with Al Jazeera, reiterated their past remarks, stating that they won’t allow Iran to build nuclear weapons, but ultimately said diplomacy is the best approach. Yes, we too prefer diplomacy since based on the Fatwa of our Supreme Leader are not for nuclear weapons; rather, we are advocates of diplomacy to make the Middle East a nuclear-free region. But, in case the Israeli regime threatens us with nuclear weapons, we surely cannot sit idle and wait for permission from others.”

Europe’s Confusion in Securing Bab al-Mandab Strait and the Red Sea

Strategic Council Online – Opinion: The strategic Strait of Bab al-Mandab and the Red Sea have recently faced serious problems and crises due to the Gaza war. This is because of the protectionist approach of the Yemeni army forces toward Palestine, which, since the beginning of the Israeli regime’s attacks on the Gaza Strip, has included attacks on ships bound for or from the origin of the regime in the Red Sea.
They said they will continue their attacks until the Israeli regime’s military aggression in the Gaza Strip ends. The United States, as the most important supporter of the Israeli regime, was the first country to respond to this policy of Yemeni army forces and tried to form a global coalition to counter these attacks under the cover of supporting freedom of navigation, which, of course, failed because of conflicts of interests of Western countries and ended in the actions of the US and British attacks on positions in Yemen. Of course, although European countries were not seriously involved in the American coalition, they have numerous and complex interests in this inflammatory, and as a result, have adopted a particular and independent approach.

The prospect of Possible Departure of Hamas Political Office from Qatar

Strategic Council Online – Interview: An expert on regional issues said Qatari authorities will definitely resist Western pressure to expel Hamas leaders from their territory, and probably the United States will not move towards a zero-hundred equation in this regard because if the Hamas leaders remain in Qatar, which is an ally of the United States, is better than moving to a country outside the power of the United States to exert pressure.

Messages and Consequences of Student Protests in the United States

Strategic Council Online – Opinion: Student protests in America take on new dimensions every day.
Because the university enjoys higher public trust and social capital than other civil and social institutions and is, therefore, more effective, the current protests put the U.S. government in a “difficult situation” that is clear in the statements of current and former U.S. officials.
