Iraq ‘will never allow US bases on its soil’
http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/03/03/554166/Iraq-US-permanent-military-bases-Jaafari





'Iraq says it will under no circumstances permit the United States to build permanent military bases on its soil, which would be a violation of its sovereignty.

“Baghdad firmly rejects the construction of US military bases on its soil,” said Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Jaafari at the end of an extended visit to Russia on Friday.

Iraq will “not stand on ceremony” when it comes to the protection of its sovereignty, he said. Spam_A Spam_B He said that, back in 2014, when Baghdad asked for international help in fighting the Takfiri terrorist group of Daesh, it said the potential contribution had to meet the requirements of Iraq’s sovereignty and independence.

Jaafari said Baghdad had made the matter clear that contributions to its counter-terrorism operations should not lead to the establishment of military bases or permanent foreign military presence in its territory.

“Iraq’s sovereignty is our red line,” the Iraqi foreign minister said.

He pointed to the presence of permanent US military bases in “South Korea, Turkey, Japan, and many other world countries” long after the end of World War II and said the bases violated those countries’ sovereignty.'

Seeing is believing . . . .

I suspect this is for domestic politics, and not reality.

The US already has a huge embassy building in Iraq

https://huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/16/us-embassy-iraq-state-department-plan_n_965945.html

Quote
The embassy compound is by far the largest the world has ever seen, at one and a half square miles, big enough for 94 football fields. It cost three quarters of a billion dollars to build (coming in about $150 million over budget). Inside its high walls, guard towers and machine-gun emplacements lie not just the embassy itself, but more than 20 other buildings, including residential quarters, a gym and swimming pool, commercial facilities, a power station and a water-treatment plant.

Iraq Vows to Buck US Sanctions on Iran and End US Troop Presence
http://www.mintpressnews.com/iraq-vows-to-buck-us-sanctions-on-iran-and-us-troop-presence/253489/





'In another blow to US control over Iraq, the country’s foreign minister warned that Baghdad would ignore US sanctions on Iran. Speaking to journalists on Wednesday, Iraqi Foreign Minister Mohammed Ali al-Hakim laid out the latest step on the path to independence for Baghdad from the US concerning sanctions on Iran by Washington. Although Iraq currently has a 90-day waiver to trade with Iran issued on December 20th, Hakim let reporters know Iraq would be pursuing their own policy on Iran should the waiver not be renewed.

Hakim explained to reporters that “These sanctions, the siege, or what is called the embargo,” imposed by the US is “unilateral, not international,” and Iraq is “not obliged [to follow] them.” Spam_A Spam_B This is a big step for Baghdad to take in the face of pressure from Washington for Iraq to become “energy independent” with the help of US corporations exploiting their oil and gas resources. Instead, as explained by Hakim, Iraq would rather choose their own options for energy, even if that includes continuing the annual $12 billion in trade between Iraq and Iran flowing over US objections.

There are also discussions ongoing concerning increasing the amount of trade between Baghdad and Tehran despite US pressure. Iraqi President Barham Salih and his Iranian President Hassan Rouhani even doubled down on this during a recent meeting where Rouhani said that Tehran was willing to increase trade with Baghdad from the $12 billion a year mark to $20 billion.

Hakim assured reporters Iraq is already thinking of “solutions” to counteract any US threats to increased trade with Iran. According to Hakim, there are multiple options open to Baghdad “including dealing in Iraqi dinars in bilateral trade” as opposed to US dollars.'

The Daily Telegraph


Donald Trump will keep troops in Iraq to 'watch Iran'
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/02/03/donald-trump-will-keep-troops-iraq-watch-iran/





'The United States will keep troops in Iraq in order to “watch” Iran, Donald Trump said on Sunday.

Mr Trump said he wanted to maintain a military presence in the country even though he had repeatedly described the original decision to invade Iraq as one of the “greatest mistakes” ever made by the US.

“We spent a fortune on building this incredible base. We might as well keep it,” Mr Trump said in a wide-ranging interview on the CBS flagship political programme, Face the Nation.

“One of the reasons I want to keep it is because I want to be looking a little bit at Iran because Iran is a real problem.”

The base, he said, was perfectly situated for looking across the whole of the Middle East. “We're going to keep watching and we're going to keep seeing and if there's trouble, if somebody is looking to do nuclear weapons or other things, we're going to know it before they do.”

The US president has faced criticism over his approach to the Middle East, alarming senior Republicans over his determination to disengage from the region.

Mr Trump, however, reiterated his unhappiness with the endless and costly wars in Syria and Afghanistan as he sought to clarify and justify his approach to the region.

Just before Christmas, Mr Trump announced that he was pulling 2,000 troops out of Syria against the wishes of his defence secretary at the time, James Mattis, who quit in protest.

In the Face the Nation interview, the US president said he had asked for Mr Mattis to resign because he was unhappy with his performance.

“He resigned because I was very nice to him. But I gave him big budgets and he didn't do well in Afghanistan,” he said.'

Trump Says He Wants US Troops in Iraq to "Watch Iran." Iraqis' Response: Get Out
http://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/02/04/trump-says-he-wants-us-troops-iraq-watch-iran-iraqis-response-get-out


'Baghdad is firing back on Monday with calls to potentially boot U.S. troops out of Iraq in response to President Donald Trump's comments that he wants to keep them there to "watch Iran."

Speaking to CBS's "Face the Nation" in an interview that aired Sunday, Trump said he wants the continued military presence

Quote
because I want to be able to watch Iran. We have an unbelievable and expensive military base built in Iraq. It's perfectly situated for looking at all over different parts of the troubled Middle East rather than pulling up. And this is what a lot of people don't understand. We're going to keep watching and we're going to keep seeing and if there's trouble, if somebody is looking to do nuclear weapons or other things, we're going to know it before they do.

But U.S. troops have no right to do that, said Iraqi President Barham Salih, adding that Trump's comments were "surprising."


  "Trump did not ask us to keep U.S. troops to watch Iran," Salih said at a forum in Baghdad. The agreement between Washington and Baghdad is for the troops to combat terrorism, he said, and doing otherwise would be "unacceptable."

"The Iraqi constitution rejects the use of Iraq as a base for hitting or attacking a neighboring country," he said.

"The U.S. is a major power ... but do not pursue your own policy priorities, we live here," he stated, and added, "It is of fundamental interest for Iraq to have good relations with Iran" and its other neighbors.

According to NPR, Trump's comments also sparked the ire of Iraq's main militias, who said they could push for a vote in parliament to kick out U.S. troops. The outlet also noted a "growing sentiment" held by Iraqis that U.S. troops should go.'

PM Abdul-Mahdi says no foreign bases will be accepted on Iraqi soil
http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/02/13/588441/Iraq-Adil-Abdul-Mahdi-foreign-bases





Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi had told the visiting US defense chief that his country will accept no foreign military bases on its soil, just as it will not take dictates from outsiders.

In a meeting with Acting US Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan in Baghdad on Tuesday, Abdul-Mahdi said that Iraq-US relations must be based on the “basic agreements” existing between the two sides, which merely deal with fighting terrorism and training Iraqi forces, and “nothing else,” the Iraqi News reported.

Quote
Iraq makes “independent” decisions and will not be influenced by foreign pressure or dictates, he noted, reiterating Baghdad’s objection to the presence of foreign military bases on Iraqi territory.


Abdul-Mahdi also hailed Iraq’s achievements in restoring stability after defeating the Daesh terrorist group, and urged international support for the ongoing reconstruction process. The premier said Iraq was open to enhanced cooperation and relations with Arab and regional states in line with national interests.



In December 2017, Iraq finally declared the end of Daesh reign of terror, thanks to Iran’s military advisory support.

The US, however, has kept up its military presence in the Arab country.

President Donald Trump sparked a wave of condemnations in Iraq earlier this month, when he said he intended to keep US troops there to keep a close eye on Iran.

Reacting to those remarks days later, Abdul-Mahdi insisted that his country could in no way be used for action against others. Iraq’s most senior Shia cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani also rejected propositions that Iraq would serve as a launching pad to harm other countries.'
