Article by Dr. Farhad Alaa El-Din, in Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper, followed by Network 964:
At a time when regional and international powers are struggling to expand their influence in the Middle East amidst the sound of imminent drums of war that are still beating here and there around the clock, I had a conversation with the ambassador of one of the European countries in Baghdad about Prime Minister Muhammad Shiaa al-Sudani’s announcement to end the presence of forces. The international coalition in Iraq, so he asked me what is the ultimate goal of Iraq?

Despite the simplicity of the question, its answer is important and deserves clarification, whether to the ambassador, the international community, or internal public opinion, as the Iraqi is also still searching for an answer.

The goal may be clear and simple, but the rising level of tension on the part of this or that party is what stands behind the complexity of the scene. Iraq is undoubtedly a country seeking to distance itself from involvement in a war imposed by another party that undoubtedly threatens its future and the future of its generations and undermines its peace and stability. A country that is keen to care for its citizens who have been exhausted by these wars, to provide them with safety, raise the level of basic services, redevelop infrastructure, and invest its human and natural resources to build a promising future for the people. To achieve all of this, Iraq must exit the circle of regional and international conflict and end the military presence that was established to fight ISIS, as the Prime Minister believes that “ISIS does not today represent a threat to the Iraqi state.”

Over the past forty years, Iraq has lived through a series of devastating wars, the first of which was the Iraq-Iran war, then the Gulf Wars and the overthrow of the regime, the last of which was the ISIS war. These wars left behind devastation, devastation, tragedies and woes that transformed Iraq from the strongest to the weakest country in the region. Its financial wealth was dissipated and it became indebted hundreds of billions to various countries in the region and the world. Its infrastructure and its military, industrial and agricultural capabilities collapsed, until poverty affected more than a quarter of its population, unemployment spread and the education sectors collapsed. And health and basic services, and most importantly of all, its human losses, including young men, children and women, in alarming numbers.

Despite this heavy legacy, the current government headed by Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani has placed upon itself the responsibility of rebuilding the state according to an ambitious program, but it has found itself in the arena of a regional and international conflict without the conflicting parties paying attention to the interests of Iraq and focusing their concerns on self-interests, without taking into account the challenges facing the state. Iraqi. The scene became more complicated after the events in Gaza last October.

The government is determined to achieve its goals, and this cannot be done if Iraq remains an arena for conflicts amid an anxious and tense security and military situation that threatens a larger and broader war than what we are currently witnessing. Stopping this war requires action on more than one level and in more than one direction:

First: Strengthening and developing bilateral relations with the countries under the banner of the international coalition in a way that serves Iraq, suits the needs of the Iraqi state, and serves common interests with those countries. This is what was indicated in the statement of the Prime Minister’s meeting with the Secretary-General of NATO in Davos, as It stated, “Iraq does not mind cooperating with the countries of the international coalition in the field of armament, training, and equipment, within the framework of bilateral relations that bring together Iraq and the countries of this coalition.”

Second: Removing Iraq from the arena of conflict, as Iraq does not want to be a party to regional conflicts, but rather wants to remain at the same distance with all countries, especially those involved in this conflict. Iraq considers both Iran and the United States to be its strategic partners, and it cannot be a party to what is going on between them at the level of the entire region. This conflict is evident in Syria, as Iran needs an air and land bridge to reach Syria, while the United States needs to use Iraqi territory to support the presence of its forces in Syria. However, each of them can find alternative ways to serve their interests and plans, whether in Syria or other hotbeds of raging conflict, without involving Iraq in the current conflict.

Third: Strengthening the Iraqi presence on the regional and international arena, as Iraq cannot be affiliated with anyone or a backyard for any party. Iraq has many capabilities that help it play a pivotal role in global politics and diplomacy. Iraq is an important country in the international energy market. It has a strategic location in the Middle East and is the only Arab country that has distinguished relations with all neighboring countries and the great powers, both eastern and western. It is also a country of special importance. In fighting terrorism.

Fourth: Developing common interests between the countries of the region and the international community. Iraq wants to rebuild the state and its infrastructure and has the wealth and material capabilities it needs to present strategic projects that these countries benefit from to operate their companies and economies, whether directly or indirectly.

Fifth: The Iraqi forces are the most experienced and knowledgeable in fighting terrorism, at the forefront of which is ISIS. These forces fought the most dangerous and ferocious terrorist organizations, fought a fierce street war and won amazing victories through unparalleled valor and courage. The international community can benefit from Iraqi experience in fighting the most powerful terrorist organizations and cells.

Ending the state of war is a priority for the Iraqi state. Returning to the ambassador’s question, Iraq wants to achieve stability and prosperity for its people, by all possible means, and Iraq has all the required elements of natural and human resources and a strategic geographic location.

The people have tasted the scourges and pain they have been through for decades, and the time has come when they should live in peace, which is imminent in light of the announced government program, in addition to the fact that the Prime Minister’s insistence and adherence to achieving what was stated in his government’s program has become the ultimate ambition of the Iraqis. and their legitimate aspirations. We must always remember that opportunities only come once in most cases, and this opportunity is the most important for partners from friendly and brotherly countries, and they must remember that Iraq’s stability and prosperity are the key to the region’s political and security stability and economic prosperity.
