State Department: Washington does not pressure Iraq due to cooperation with the Russian Federation; it leads an honest discussion with it

According to the State Department, the statements of the American generals about the cessation of support for Iraq in the event that it expands its cooperation with the Russian Federation in the fight against ISIS are not political pressure on Baghdad, reports RIA News.




The agency recalls that on Wednesday, the chairman of the committee of the chiefs of staff of the Dunford US Armed Forces stated that "the international coalition will not be able to conduct operations against the Islamic State group in Iraq if Russia starts its military operation there." And before that, with a request to stop cooperation with Russia, the US special representative for the struggle against the Islamists, John Allen, addressed the Iraqi government.

“Is this (statement) a pressure tool? Not. I would say that we have an honest and frank discussion with the government of Iraq. I repeat once again that this is ultimately the decision that Iraq should itself make, "
State Department spokesman Toner told reporters.

However, he refused to disclose the “details of the diplomatic negotiations” between Baghdad and Washington.

              If Iraq cooperates with Russia, then Russia will create such a coalition belt: Syria, Iraq, Iran. The ability to use the territories of these countries for a more comfortable military campaign against ISIS.

              If this happens, this in itself will already be a victory. The issue with ISIS will be resolved in a relatively short time. Depending on the chosen strategy, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

              So far, this BELT is breaking one missing element of IRAQ. And the Americans understand that. If Russia closes it, it will receive such control that will disrupt the coordination of ISIS.

              PS
              Plus the moral side of the issue, Russia will show the whole world how, without violating international law, it is possible to effectively fight terrorism.

      Selling Arabs. Merged Saddam, merge anyone. Now, just taking advantage of our actions, they bargain for themselves the Americans' preferences. "You will give us this, this and that, otherwise we will be friends with the Russians." Old number.

    Washington does not put pressure on Iraq because of cooperation with the Russian Federation, it leads with it fair discussion

    Honest discussion ??? Fashington and honest discussion is nonsense! This cannot be because it cannot be!
    In general, honesty as a quality is not characteristic of the Anglo-Saxons in general and the SGA in particular.

      Well, for some reason, at the moment they are honest, or you are dreaming or against us. We can replace the government. In this case, they do not deceive Iraq.

    I wonder if this is not pressure, then what does “pressure” mean in their understanding? Oh yes, I forgot! But Iraq probably remembers from the time of Saddam what "democratic pressure" (aircraft carriers and cruise missiles) is. So everyone understood everything ...

    To block the skies of Iraq for our VKS, if requested by the Iraqi government, it will be difficult for the band-eared, since such a decision does not have any legitimacy. True, in response, ours will block the Syrian sky, it is completely justified.
    And so, they are so darling. They do not "pressure" the Iraqi government at all, they simply blackmail it.

      Our planes have no other way but through the space of Iraq! That's what the Americans are trying to achieve. Bulgarians and Turks have found a reason to block the skies of our aircraft, so they will find it here if the Iraqi government is crushed.

    Fair? But the men don’t know.
    The news is off topic: IS turned to Israel in Hebrew: “We will deliver the world from you”
    The terrorist organization "Islamic State" for the first time published an appeal in Hebrew, the site "Srugim" notes. A militant in a military uniform and in a black mask warns the Jews that the "caliphate" will destroy them first in Jerusalem, and then throughout the world.
    "Continue to do our business, but soon we will get to you. You will be ten times responsible for all your crimes. There will not be a single Jew in Jerusalem and all Palestine, and then we will rid the whole world of this disease," he promises. http://www.newsru.co.il/mideast/23oct2015/isis_heb8002.html

    I did not read funnier statements.
    First they captured the country, killed its leader, sponsored the creation of a terrorist state on its territory, and then they say that it was all support.

    Pisi: I wonder if there is a person in Iraq who regrets after the end of such support?

      Purely neighing ... The USA gives the whole world a perpetual subscription to the circus, where all performances end with cutting heads. And during intermissions, visitors are entertained by clowns, half of which are vampires, the other half are cannibals. We are all invited to snatch to death. Hitchcock nervously smokes in the corner, poor thing, he was a little taut with imagination.

    (According to the State Department, statements by American generals about ending support for Iraq if it expands cooperation with Russia in the fight against IS are not political pressure on Baghdad.)

    Well yes. Nothing personal, but just loudly blow and ruin the air (well, as always, in the Anglo-Saxon style). bully
