Iraqi Official: Rouhani ‘Means
Serious Business’ With US
By: Barbara Slavin for Al-Monitor Posted on August 16.
Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said on Aug. 16 that his country is ready to serve as a “bridge” between the United States and Iran, and believes that the Iranian leadership’s acquiescence to the recent election of Hassan Rouhani means that it is serious about resolving the nuclear dispute.
Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari says the Iranian leadership could have prevented Hassan Rouhani from becoming president if it wanted to continue hard-line policies toward the United States.

Zebari, in Washington for consultations that primarily focused on rising regional sectarianism, terrorism and the Syria conflict, said in response to a question from Al-Monitor that Rouhani, 64, a cleric partly educated in Scotland, is “a credible leader” who has “very strong relations with all the key leaders in Iran.”
Still, “there are many ways his election could have been scuttled,” had Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and other power centers in Iran decided to do so, Zebari said. That Khamenei accepted the election of the least hard-line candidate allowed to run “was a statement by the Islamic Republic to the international community that it means serious business” on the nuclear issue, the veteran Iraqi official said. Zebari added that Rouhani’s win also reflected “enormous pressures” from the Iranian people who are eager to ease Iran’s diplomatic isolation and economic distress.
With the confirmation of most of Rouhani’s cabinet this week, including US-educated Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, the Iranian government is expected to move swiftly to resume stalled multilateral talks on the nuclear dispute. Zebari predicted a new meeting of the P5+1 — the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany — in September, but said Iran might not arrive with a new proposal off the bat.
“I doubt it will happen that soon but pressures are mounting on them to seek a solution,” Zebari said, noting the impact of economic sanctions on the Iranian economy.
Zebari echoed comments made to Al-Monitor editor and CEO Andrew Parasiliti recently by Lukman Faily, Iraq’s newly appointed ambassador to the United States, that Iraq would be happy to facilitate a meeting between the United States and Iran. However, there was no indication that Washington has asked Baghdad to perform that function. US officials — and Zebari — declined comment on whether he was bringing any messages from Tehran.
Zebari, addressing the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, also spoke about the rising violence throughout the region. More than 3,000 people have died in Iraq in recent months in car bombings and other acts of terrorism that Zebari blamed on Sunni militants. Still, he rejected assertions that Iraq — which is ruled by a Shiite majority government — is descending into the sort of sectarian warfare that tore the country apart from 2005 to 2007, when thousands of US troops were still there.
“There are extreme forces on both sides, but we have not reached the level … of civil war,” Zebari said.
He contrasted his government’s handling of opposition demonstrations to the brutal crackdown by Egypt’s military-run government on the Muslim Brotherhood, which has resulted in hundreds of deaths and rising instability.
Iraq “has not resorted to some methods Egyptians recently deployed to disperse demonstrators,” Zebari said.
On other matters, the Iraqi foreign minister said:
• Iraq was trying to prevent arms from reaching Syria through Iraqi airspace but lacks the equipment to prevent such flights. “Iraq doesn’t have a single fighter plane up to now” or integrated air defense, Zebari said, though it is seeking to purchase such equipment from the United States.
• Iraq wants to improve strained relations with both Saudi Arabia and Turkey, Sunni powers that have had disputes with the Baghdad government. With Saudi Arabia, Zebari said, Iraq is close to concluding a treaty to exchange prisoners, and the two countries are considering opening a border crossing to facilitate trade, which already amounts to about $4 billion a year. Turkey, meanwhile, is Iraq’s largest trading partner, with annual commerce worth $12 billion to $14 billion, Zebari said. Iraq is also Turkey’s “only viable route to the GCC [Gulf Cooperation Council]” given the closing of Turkish cross-border traffic with Syria.
• Iraq still hopes to become the world’s second largest oil exporter after Saudi Arabia. Production is due to reach 4.5 million barrels a day by the end of 2014 and 9 million barrels a day by 2020, Zebari said.
The Iraqi minister said his country remains grateful for the US-led overthrow of Saddam Hussein, and that with continued US help under a strategic framework agreement, Iraq can overcome the challenges of terrorism and sectarianism.
“Iraq was the first country in our region to make the transition from dictatorship to democracy,” Zebari said. “The road has been long, hard, very arduous and tortuous but still worth taking. … For all the suffering we have endured, the people of Iraq and our neighbors are much better off with Saddam gone.”

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Several thousand Kurds, mainly members of Islamic parties, staged a protest in the Kurdish capital of Erbil on Saturday to denounce the killing of Muslim Brotherhood protesters in Egypt by the army.
The gathering in Erbil’s Shanidar Park was organized by the Kurdistan Islamic Union and the Islamic League (Komal) to condemn the “coup” by the Egyptian military against the government of Mohammed Morsi and the violent crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood protesters.
Amid shouts of “Down with Sisi’s Army,” by the crowd, the leaders of the two Islamic parties, Muhammad Faraj and Ali Bapir urged the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) to publically denounce the killing of civilian protesters by the Egyptian army hundreds of whom have been in the killed in the past two days.
“We Kurds have been burnt by the fire of repression before,” the Komal leader Ali Bapir told the crowd. “Therefore we feel other people’s pain.”
“Our Muslim neighbors have persecuted us, the superpowers have betrayed us,” he added. “What happened to the Muslims in Egypt is the same that happened to us, that’s why we stand against it.”
Ali Qaradaghi, a Kurd, and head of the International Union of Muslim Scholars condemned the attack by the Egyptian army on the Muslim Brotherhood and he urged the Kurdish parties to denounce the violent in Egypt “as America and the rest of the world.”
“The attacks in Egypt are against democracy and legitimacy,” Qaradaghi said. “All nations in the world must condemn that act because it is an inhuman and undemocratic act. It is a holocaust.”
The Kurdistan Islamic Movement (IMK)—Kurdistan’s oldest Islamic party—boycotted Saturday’s gathering, saying that the Islamic Union and Komal had exploited the event for their own political gain.
In an official statement, the IMK said that the Islamic Union and Komal had stolen the idea for a public gathering on the events that was initially suggested by the IMK.
“All Islamic groups and scholars should have been consulted to make it a joint effort and keep it away from political agendas and a election propaganda,” read the IMK statement, referring to the organizers’ monopoly of the gathering in Shanidar Park.
Organizers of the protest however, told Rudaw “We invited the IMK to join us and express their views openly, but they declined.”
Islamic officials also complained that the security forces and the police had stopped people from entering Erbil in order to participate in the protest and turned them back at the checkpoints.
But governor of Erbil, Nawzad Hadi, told Rudaw that the organizers of the protest had initially said that the gathering would only be for the residents of Erbil.
“They had told us that the gathering would only be for the people of Erbil and its suburbs,” Hadi said. “They said that they would organize similar gatherings in other towns separately, that’s why people were not allowed to come to Erbil.”
Iraqi Bloc Accuses Baghdad of Military Crackdown in Sunni Provinces
Since early August, units from the Iraqi army backed by jet fighters and helicopter gunships have pursued operations in the suburbs of Baghdad and parts of Salahaddin in what they call “an attempt to root out fighters of the al-Qaeda organization."
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – The political bloc of Iraq’s parliamentary speaker Osama Nujeifi has accused the government of orchestrating a military campaign in the Sunni provinces, following months of widespread protests against the Shiite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.
The Sunni-dominated Al-Mutahudin bloc that is headed by Nujeifi, said in a statement that, “The Iraqi government under Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has launched a military operation in Baghdad, Salahaddin and Diyala provinces in order to avenge the residents of those areas.”
It added that the crackdown was tantamount to an “uncivilized and sectarian operation that could be called massacre,” and its aim was “to punish the people of those areas on a sectarian basis.”
Since Maliki’s second term as prime minister in 2010, Iraq’s Sunni leaders have been critical of him and his government, accusing the premier of sectarianism and heavy-handedness in the country’s central Sunni provinces.
An April military crackdown on a peaceful protest in Hawija, in which more than 60 people were killed, led to several weeks of bloody confrontation between the Iraqi army and the Sunni residents of Salahaddin, Mosul and Anbar.
Since early August, units from the Iraqi army backed by jet fighters and helicopter gunships have pursued operations in the suburbs of Baghdad and parts of Salahaddin in what they call “an attempt to root out fighters of the al-Qaeda organization.”
The operation came after more than 500 prisoners escaped prison, aided by insurgents who attacked the compound outside Baghdad.
On the other hand, Iraqi security officials are in hot water over their failure to establish security in the country, where in July alone more than 800 people were killed in car bombs.
Following a deadly car bomb last week which claimed more than 200 dead and injured, the head of the Iraqi National Congress (INC), Ahmad Chalabi, blamed Maliki for the deteriorating security and asked him to step down.
“If you value the blood of the Iraqi people, step down and don’t be a slave to your position,” Shafaq News quoted Chalabi as saying.
