He added, “Iran may not have any reservations about renewing Al-Kazemi’s second term, but perhaps even support this matter, due to Al-Kazemi’s closeness to the views between Tehran and Riyadh and between Tehran and the rest of the world and the disbursement of financial dues and other files,” adding that “this matter does not mean The framework has something, and it is not possible to accept the renewal of the mandate, even if there is Iranian or other pressure on this file, even though it does not exist until now.”

An informed political source had revealed, earlier today, that the caretaker prime minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, would visit Iran before heading to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The Saudi royal court had announced earlier that US President Joe Biden would visit Saudi Arabia in mid-July to meet with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and the visit schedule includes a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi and Jordan’s King Abdullah Bin Al Hussein.

It is noteworthy that the political blocs agreed in the parliament session that took place the day before yesterday, Thursday, to proceed with the formation of the new federal government, according to the principle of “partnership, balance, and consensus”, which are the conditions announced by Kurdish leader Massoud Barzani.

This agreement came after the breakdown of the tripartite alliance between the Kurdistan Democratic Party led by Masoud Barzani, the Sovereignty Alliance headed by Khamis al-Khanjar, and the Sadrist movement led by Muqtada al-Sadr following the resignation of the Sadrist bloc’s deputies, and the current’s withdrawal from the political process by order of al-Sadr.

A parliamentary source had disclosed yesterday, Friday, to Shafak News Agency, the formation of the new government after the Eid al-Adha holiday, and while he indicated that it will be a “component quota” government, he confirmed the anticipation of political blocs outside the Shiite house of the ministries of the Sadrist movement after the resignation of his deputies and their failure to participate in the next government.
