Russian Foreign Ministry: the possibility of military assistance to Iraq will be considered if the government of the country turns to her

65
In the case of the request of the Iraqi authorities for help in fighting the IS, Moscow will assess the military and political expediency of such measures, after which it will make a decision, reports RIA News Statement by the Director of the Department of Foreign Affairs Ilya Rogachev.



“Either we will have an appropriate appeal from the government of Iraq, or a resolution of the Security Council, the adoption of which depends crucially on the will of the government of Iraq. If there are such sufficient grounds, both political and military expediency will be assessed. ”, - the diplomat said, answering the question, “is Moscow considering the possibility of conducting an air force operation against the IS on the territory of Iraq”.

Recall that attacks on IS facilities in Syria are Russian aviation started applying at the request of the country's legitimate president Bashar al-Assad. Americans have been bombing Syrian territory for a year, not coordinating their actions with either the UN Security Council or the Syrian leadership.

      Already in the news, it sounded that Iraq did not believe the United States and could quite appeal.

        This is purely my opinion, but I think that Russia has seriously decided to tackle the Middle East. It’s too early to speak now, but after a couple of weeks, when our headquarters evaluates the results of the bombing, conclusions will follow and we must dance from this. But the fact that Russia will not leave BV now is for sure. And about Iraq - what for the coordination center in Iraq was placed? Here is food for thought. IMHO.

          Food is one thing.
          And thinking is different.

          Actually, the fight against these non-humans resembles the fight against cockroaches.

            Not just that, the Federation Council approved the use of the RF Armed Forces not only in Syria, but outside the Russian Federation!
            And then (Evening with Solovyov) the liberals began to stink: "When the Federation Council began to give permission for the use of the army only in Ukraine! And here What? Putin wants to take over the whole world ??? Aaa? How will the" civilized countries "look at us! "

            Dry your snot! Everything goes according to plan!

          The bombing here is certainly not an end in itself. The question is wider. This is a strike (military) in the United States. It is clear that peace will never be there if Washington’s hands are there. And this is still a demonstration of Russia's military power and determination. To whom it was addressed they immediately understood and raised a howl. In addition to military operations, economic ones should also be conducted to revive the economies. Like the experience of Afghanistan. Only to bomb and kill I think the result will not. Roughly speaking, we entered into a military clash with the United States. We say ISIS means the United States. I think everyone understands this perfectly.

          Do it seriously? There is 1 air group - 30 aircraft. In order to "get serious about" it is necessary 10 times more and a ground contingent of at least 100 thousand. Otherwise, everything will turn into a burden with losses and a drop in international authority. A "quick victorious war" is needed soldier

        If the Iraqi authorities ask for help in the fight against IS, Moscow will assess the military and political feasibility of such measures, after which it will make a decision, RIA Novosti reports the statement by the director of the Foreign Ministry department, Ilya Rogachev.

        I think our president will do this only when the situation in Syria improves. At the same time, fighting in Iraq and Syria is difficult for us. This is probably also known in Iraq, so the request for help is now unlikely to be voiced.

      ISIS must be finished off anyway. And so, they will be squeezed in Syria, they will go to Iraq. This has already happened. So, to finish off the complete eradication, so that it does not revive, at least in the near future. So, at one time, they did not finish off the Banderaites, they decided that they would "correct themselves," but they hid and crawled out when it was difficult for the country.

            The position of our liberals and other prostitutes comes down to the theses:
            - Russia is not a great power, therefore it should sit quietly and deal only with internal problems;
            - Russia should not spend money on the military-industrial complex, it is necessary to give it to social programs (read them in your pocket);
            - Russia is the dictatorship of Putin and besides, it has a stupid people (read * d * lo) because it does not share the "high" ideals of the Russian "intelligentsia" in selling the country to Western owners;

            That’s all, in fact, all their essentiality!

        Here the conversation was about the fact that, before "getting in" into Syria and starting the use of our Armed Forces there, an agreement was reached with a number of countries, including the SA ... the resignation of Assad, threatening physical measures, and the termination of the work of Russian aircraft ...

        So the East is a delicate matter ... But the Saudis should not have any faith at all - they are worse than a weather vane, and they will never be friends of Russia ...

    Americans have been bombing Syrian territory for a year, not coordinating their actions with either the UN Security Council or the Syrian leadership.
    They feel they are the masters of the world, and here they are bombing. In fact, nobody wants to quarrel with them. And they CAN quarrel (if they want), in fact, only Russia and China.

      War in this region is a permanent concept. It has long involved states and their Eurovassals and some countries in the region. We climbed into Syria for very good reasons for us. And this is not only the threat of the proliferation of ISIS! There are direct Russian interests of economic and state security. Take a look at the map and understand. Syria in the region is akin to Ukraine. It is impossible to bypass its territory with the planned US gas supplies to Europe to the peak of Russia! Amer took control of the Xlohostan, and we will take Syria! Which is much more detrimental to the mattress. So it goes.

    Information preparation for the very obvious step. IS began in Iraq, oil and money were first seized in Iraq. That's right, confining ourselves to Syria is about the 44th stop on the state border of the USSR. And the ground operation there, perhaps, will be provided by Iran with the active participation of the Kurds. Although, if not mistaken, the north of Iran is predominantly Sunni. Therefore, misunderstandings are possible.

      In general, Shiites make up the majority of the population, except Iran, in Azerbaijan, Qatar and Bahrain, a fairly large number also in Iraq.

    Assistance to Iraq is quite possible under the following conditions: 1) they pay all the costs of the operation (not necessarily with real money, for example, with oil fields); 2) Iraq is changing its political orientation; 3) purchases weapons and military equipment of Russian production, etc. At the moment this seems to me an unlikely development of events, but in the future it is quite possible when ISIS fighters will be forced out of Syria to them. Especially when you consider that ISIS as a structure originated in Iraq and then spread to neighboring Syria. We will have to take into account the fact that even with our help, Assad will never be able to completely get rid of terrorists if they correct the score on the other side of the border.

    There is a good Russian saying: take the load by yourself, so as not to fall when walking! The capital of IS is located in northern Syria. She has not yet been hit. And already started about Iraq. In Iraq, there is a government army that manages to maintain serviceable tanks, and to throw whole tank units while running away from IS fighters in jeeps. I believe that there is no hope for the Iraqi army, therefore it makes no sense to help them with bombing. We need to help the northern regions of Iraq, where the Kurds live. They have powerful militias that IS is afraid to get involved with. If they deploy a ground operation against Ig, then there is a reason to support them from the air. True, they will agree to this, only on the condition that Russia recognizes them as a state. There will be problems with Turkey, but I think it will be a well-deserved slap in the face for Erdogan for supporting separatist activities in Crimea and for sagging to the West on the Black Sea gas pipeline.
