Iraqi MFA: government forces deal with terrorists without foreign troops

30
The fight against terrorist groups in Iraq will be fought by government forces, without foreign intervention, reports RIA News Statement by Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Al-Jaafari.


Ashton Carter with his wife in Baghdad, December 2015

"The real control of ground or any other operations against terrorism in Iraq will be carried out only by the hands of Iraqi forces without the intervention of any other forces, except for individual advisers",
said the minister.

“Iraq is a sovereign state that will not allow anyone to violate its sovereignty,” al-Jaafari stressed.

He expressed the hope that DAISH (IG) will be finished this year.

The agency recalls that on Sunday, US Secretary of Defense Carter announced the Pentagon’s intention to send paratroopers to Iraq "to assist local forces in conducting operations against the IG grouping." At the same time, Carter did not mention the date of the transfer of troops, nor their number.

      “Iraq is a sovereign state that will not allow anyone to violate its sovereignty”

      I’m not sure who then occupied Iraq in 2003, as a result of which ISIS appeared. Let's wait and see how to say it.

        From the text of the article
        “Iraq is a sovereign state that will not allow anyone to violate its sovereignty,” emphasized al-Jaafari.

        It's nice to hear the words not "boy" - but husband! One fighting spirit of the personality already speaks volumes.
        Keep it up, Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Al-Jaafari!

          Dear Tatyana, Fighting spirit of course means a lot, but look at the photo, this gray-haired uncle with glasses has a "fighting" attitude because these are the true masters of Iraq, well, comrade al-Jaafari, of course, respect for his courage. hi

          Well, Erdogan won ignoring Iraq calmly, they only expanded the base, introduced additional units, and deployed platforms for receiving and basing helicopters.

          Iraq was already blown away there, if at first it set ultimatums, threatened to almost bomb, tried to convene an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, now they don’t even remember about the base. That is, they reconciled.

        It’s not hard to guess who these advisers are. Everything is as usual.

    If only America decides to write off ISIS for scrap.

      Zomanus .... But who will let them decide for themselves?

      Surprisingly, Iraq behaves much more independently than any country from the EU.
      Iraq buys a lot of our weapons, despite US pressure. Who, who, and
      Iraq in its own way has borne all the charms of American democracy.

      Nevertheless, the Russian Federation urgently supplied Iraq with attack aircraft, Mi-28s and Solntsepeks ... And all this without looking back from both Iraq and the Russian Federation. (For the Russian Federation, this is critical for a number of reasons, transferring advanced weapons to a full vassal of the United States is fraught and fraught with if these vassals discredit these weapons either deliberately or not skillfully)

    Of course, the honor of dying in battle will go to Iraqi troops, the Americans can only watch and advise, in general - to lead.

    I think it dawned on Iraq that if the US helps, the assistance will be essentially "American". American aid is help when the results of the aid are not visible, but the heaviness of receiving the aid itself is noticeably felt.

    Links of one chain. In the northeast of Syria, in the territory controlled by the Syrian Kurds, the Americans are intensively rebuilding the runway of the local airfield. More than 200 people are already involved. The work is carried out with the tacit consent of the Kurds. The Syrian authorities did not give the go-ahead for this. The States are preparing an Air Force base for themselves. There is a great desire to stay in that region on a permanent basis.

    These are empty words. They will want to enter the USA and send troops and will not ask the leadership of Iraq.

    In the near future, with our support, the Syrian troops and the militia by landing an airborne assault within Syrian territory can take control of two motorways: Deir ez-Zor - El-Kamyshly and El-Kamyshly-Mosul. "
    We and Syria have about 20 military transport helicopters that can be deployed in Deir ez-Zor and El-Kamyshly. And from them, having accumulated resources, it is possible to land troops. In the desert, such actions will be very effective, since the Mujahideen do not have aviation and they are limited in air defense means. Can Americans interfere, as they are also preparing military operations in these areas? It is unlikely that we and Assad’s troops have a better chance of success, since we have more military resources and combat experience in the region, we know this area and act there legitimately.

    More recently, Iraq did not openly conceal that the army was in decline. And here, apparently, in the wake of the defeat of the igil, such statements are made.

    The problem is that no one (and especially the United States) will let them deal with terrorists without foreign intervention.

    Iraq has already seen the Americans take cities, starting with carpet bombing and shelling. After seeing how we use aviation, Iraqis are quite possibly afraid of American intervention.

    “Iraq is a sovereign state that will not allow anyone to violate its sovereignty,” al-Jaafari stressed.

    Unfortunately, these are just empty words. Even the Turks make fun of the "sovereign state", but he began to make statements towards the states. Which in general put a big bolt on international law.
    Why is it substituted for ridicule?

    ... will be conducted only by the hands of Iraqi forces

    In my opinion this is just a statement that they want to emphasize once again, allegedly, the sovereignty of Iraq. In fact, Iraq, of course, is very dependent on the United States, and the leadership understands this very well. Therefore, reservations clearly according to Freud.
