    Zebari calls for Washington to support Iraq in the face of terrorism and last longer cooperation



    Zebari and Kerry


    2013/08/16

    Tomorrow Press / Baghdad: Student Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said the United States under the strategic framework agreement signed between the two countries in 2008 to support Iraq in the face of terrorism and armed groups, while Washington has promised willingness to cooperate in the field of security.

    Zebari said at a joint press conference with his U.S. counterpart, John Kerry, on Saturday evening, on the sidelines of chairing the Iraqi delegation to the meetings of the Coordinating Committee of political and diplomatic shared with the United States, in Washington, "We need to support the United States in the field of security and the fight against terrorism and in building the Iraqi security forces to stave off the growing threat from the front of the victory and al-Qaeda in the Middle East. "

    He said Zebari said that "Iraq will not slide into a sectarian war will not go back", reiterating the position of Iraq independent of the Syrian crisis and that he did not give no money nor the oil and weapons to the Syrian regime, "denying" any connection to the Iraqi government have spoken of Iraqi fighters to Syria, but He said that there are some militias pay young people to get involved in the conflict. "

    For his part, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry that "the United States will work with the Iraqi government to respond to these attacks and terrorism," adding that he "agreed with Zebari not to allow Iran and Hezbollah igniting the crisis."

    Kerry pointed out that "there is a marked improvement in stopping the smuggling of weapons from Syria to Iraq or from Iraq to Syria, but there is still more work is required in this area."

    He called Kerry Iraq to "progress, not only in the field of security, but also in political and economic matters and constitutional broader that are still stuck," pointing out that "Iraq has made remarkable progress since his last visit to him in March although the political atmosphere of Interior and Iraq's relations with Jordan, Kuwait and Turkey have improved.

    It is noteworthy that Iraq and the United States signed in 2008, the strategic framework agreement and based on the recent visit by the Minister of Foreign Affairs John Kerry to Iraq last March are those agreements.

    Facing rising violence, Iraq seeks help from a White House focused on other crises

    By Associated Press, Updated: Friday, August 16

    WASHINGTON ? Security crises in Egypt, Syria and other countries are overshadowing rising death tolls and new fears of civil war in Iraq, once the top U.S. priority in the Mideast. However, the prospect that sectarian violence could fuel instability beyond Iraq?s borders remains a concern for the Obama administration.

    Officials and experts say the White House?s attention is focused elsewhere ? even as more than 1,000 people were killed in Iraq in July, the deadliest month since 2008. At Thursday?s meeting between Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iraqi counterpart, Hoshyar Zebari, one of the main topics was flights of weapons from Iran across Iraqi airspace into Syria and back as well as the threat from al-Qaida fighters along the Iraqi-Syrian border.

    Surveys show a majority of Americans favor President Barack Obama?s hands-off approach toward Iraq after withdrawing the U.S. military from the country in 2011 after nearly nine years of war, at least $767 billion spent in taxpayer funds and nearly 4,500 U.S. troops killed.
    But after hitting a low, if grim, level of violence immediately before the U.S. troops left, attacks have resurged in Iraq at a rate reminiscent of its darkest days. A wave of car bombs killed 33 people and wounded dozens others in Baghdad on Thursday, just the latest assault against a fearful public and a government staggering from sectarian political infighting.

    ?The security situation in Iraq is deteriorating rapidly and is of significant concern,? Sen. Bob Corker, top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Thursday, a day after meeting Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and other senior Iraqi officials during a trip to Baghdad and Irbil, the Kurdish capital in Iraq?s north.

    ?A United States foreign policy that does not recognize this will be very problematic,? said Corker, R-Tenn.

    In the 20 months since the troop withdrawal, the U.S. has sought to stay out of Iraqi affairs and engage with its government as Washington would with any other nation. A majority of Americans agreed with that approach, and 58 percent of U.S. adults said in a Washington Post-ABC poll taken in March that the Iraq war had not been worth the fight.

    Distracted by a civil war in Syria, a policy pivot to Asia, growing extremism in North Africa and Iran?s nuclear ambitions, the White House turned its attention elsewhere.

    Egypt, once reliably stable, has disintegrated over deadly street riots and attacks that killed more than 600 people Wednesday during protests over the ouster of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi. Jordan, a key U.S. ally, is threatening to collapse under financial strain caused, in large part, by more than 1 million refugees who have crossed into the country from Syria. The U.S. is also leading peace talks between Israel and Palestinian authorities, and watching a growing threat from al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula in Yemen. A threat from al-Qaida led to the closing of 19 diplomatic posts across the region last week.

    ?That?s a pretty large agenda,? said Jon Alterman, a Mideast expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. ?Iraq is no longer viewed as central to everything the U.S. cares about in the Middle East. But Iraq is still relevant to a wide range that the U.S. cares about.?
