The US presence in Iraq threatens its internal security

The member of the Iraqi Parliament from the “Al-Fatah” bloc Muhammad Karim al-Baldawi said that the US presence on Iraqi territory threatens the internal security of the country.

The Iraqi news portal “as-Somaria news”, referring to the statement of al-Baldawi, noted that the policy of the US President Donald Trump is based on provocations and can lead to bloody wars in the world. Moreover, his statements go beyond diplomatic relations between States.

According to him, the Parliament and the government of Iraq voted for the withdrawal of American troops from the country, because it can not become a military base for strikes on other States.

Yusra Rajab, a member of Parliament from the Construction and reform bloc, stressed that the Iraqi government insists on the implementation of article 8 of the Constitution, which provides for good-neighbourliness and respect for the internal Affairs of other States.
