, political analyst Kazem al-Yawar considered that the visit of Pope Al-Fattakan to Iraq is divided into three levels of religious, political and popular, indicating that it is not possible to rely much on this visit because the Pope does not have political influence on Europe, or the United States of America.
Al-Yawar said in an interview with "Al-Nour News" that the first level of the visit is religious, as "the Pope said in his own language that the first purpose of the visit was for Hajj and repentance, and his program includes visiting a number of churches."
As for the second level of the visit, it is a political level, he added. “We see that the Pope is not a political figure and does not carry any political messages in this regard, but the Iraqi authorities are trying to exploit them to give them some legitimacy in their political and governmental positions and give an image of something of democracy to polish its image.”
And he continued, as political observers, we have observations on this visit in terms of political aspects, the timing of the visit, and some places that the visit includes, such as the city of Nasiriyah, at this particular time in which Nasiriyah is experiencing great unrest.
