    [size=52]An upcoming meeting between Al-Sudani and Biden on the sidelines of the United Nations meetings next September[/size]

    [size=45]Baghdad / Tamim Al-Hassan[/size]
    [size=45]Among the moves described as “difficult,” Prime Minister Muhammad al-Sudani is supposed to meet, about a month from now, for the first time with US President Joe Biden. It is likely that the meeting will be part of the meetings of a global event, while the files that will be discussed in the upcoming meeting have not yet been determined.[/size]
    [size=45]On the other hand, the coordination framework does not deny or confirm the occurrence of the visit, but it claims that Al-Sudani had previously rejected more than one invitation to Washington.[/size]
    [size=45]These developments come at a time when it is expected that the deployment of US forces on the western border separating Iraq and Syria will begin within days (not exceeding 15 days).[/size]
    [size=45]During the last two weeks, Washington has been working with the government and the coordination framework to confirm two important things to ensure the latest moves.[/size]
    [size=45]During that period, Elena Romanowsky, the US ambassador to Baghdad, intensified her visits to officials and leaders of the “framework”, breaking a record number of meetings.[/size]
    [size=45]On the other hand, Tehran, which believes that it may be targeted by the recent deployment, has sent its traditional envoy in such crises to Baghdad.[/size]
    [size=45]And news had spread in Iraq, supported by fears from Shiite parties and factions, about the increase of 2,500 American soldiers in the areas of western Anbar.[/size]
    [size=45]In addition, the commander of Operation Inherent Resolve in the Joint Task Force Command, General Matthew MacFarlane, confirmed that the presence of US forces in Iraq is "within a non-combat role and at the invitation of the Iraqi government."[/size]
    [size=45]On the other hand, (Al-Mada) told 3 sources, two from the “framework” and one close to the American circles, about the latest political and field developments regarding the movement of the American forces.[/size]
    [size=45]The source close to Washington confirmed that "a forthcoming meeting between al-Sudani and Biden is expected to take place next September in New York as part of the United Nations meetings."[/size]
    [size=45]The source indicates that due to the complexities of the situation in Iraq and the Iranian file, "it was agreed that the meeting would be on the sidelines of the meetings of the UN organization."[/size]
    [size=45]The source points out that “until now, the files and issues that will be discussed have not been determined,” describing the preparation of these issues as “difficult.”[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Sudani was just around the corner from going to Washington before the dollar issue escalated at the beginning of this year, accusing parties close to the government of smuggling the currency to Iran.[/size]
    [size=45]On the other hand, a close associate of the “framework” says that “the prime minister rejected 3 previous invitations to visit the United States,” while he did not comment on the upcoming visit.[/size]
    [size=45]The confidant considered that the reason behind rejecting the invitations was that “Al-Sudani was not completely satisfied with the intentions of the United States,” despite the source’s assertion that the prime minister “is interested in partnership with Washington, but without the policy of axes.”[/size]
    [size=45]Regarding field developments, the other source close to the "frame" says, "There is a near deployment of US forces that will take place within the next 10 or 15 days on the dividing line between Iraq and Syria."[/size]
    [size=45]According to the source, "Washington has worked actively in the past two weeks in Iraq and the United States to ensure that forces are not attacked."[/size]
    [size=45]He continued, "The Iraqi military delegation, which went to Washington recently, discussed preventing the targeting of US forces in Syria and the US ambassador in Baghdad as well."[/size]
    [size=45]The sources indicated that the discussions were on two matters: “First, preventing the flow of militants from Iraq to Syria, and the second is preventing the transfer of weapons between Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.”[/size]
    [size=45]At the end of last week, Ambassador Romanowski had held 7 meetings in just two days, with the Prime Minister, Muhammad al-Sudani, and the leaders of the "framework", most notably Nuri al-Maliki, the head of the State of Law.[/size]
    [size=45]The Syrian newspaper, Al-Watan, quoted reports that the US forces stationed at Ain al-Assad base in Anbar province, western Iraq, intend to close the border strip with Syria.[/size]
    [size=45]According to the statement of McFarren, the military commander in the international coalition, which was broadcast by the US State Department, that US forces are in Iraq “to provide advice, assistance and empowerment of the Iraqi security forces during their battle against ISIS.”[/size]
    [size=45]The military official added, "We know very well that ISIS's ideology is dangerous and still poses a threat, and the organization still aspires to restore some kind of military capability, so we continue to work with our partner forces within the framework of our joint mission to ensure the achievement of permanent defeat."[/size]
    [size=45]Earlier, the Iraqi joint forces had downplayed UN reports on the presence of between 5 and 7 thousand elements of “ISIS” between Iraq and Syria.[/size]
    [size=45]Referring to the possibility of increasing the forces on the border with Syria, the military official in the International Coalition stressed that “the International Coalition continues to support our partners in the battle against ISIS in Syria, that is, the Syrian Democratic Forces that are leading the battle, and with regard to the Russians, there is no doubt that we do not welcome With their unsafe and unprofessional actions that endanger our forces and their forces.”[/size]
    [size=45]He pointed out that "there are parties that make explicit threats to attack the bases of the international coalition through social media, and we are aware of them, and some of our forces and advisors monitor these threats closely and are ready to respond to them, and the Iraqi security forces guarantee our protection as well."[/size]
    [size=45]And he indicated that "we closely monitor social media and also monitor the intelligence information that we receive from the Iraqis and the various countries of the international coalition to ensure that we are informed and that we take the necessary measures to protect members of the coalition present in Iraq and the Iraqi security forces if they are threatened."[/size]
    [size=45]On the political side, the second source close to the “framework” confirmed that “the United States wants to ensure that Iraq does not enter into the Iranian axis in exchange for increased cooperation.”[/size]
    [size=45]He added, "Washington is working to expand partnership with Iraq in the field of oil and gas companies, but Iran, on the other hand, has influential tools."[/size]
    [size=45]In the same context, the source confirms the presence of "Ismail Qaani, commander of the Quds Force, a few days ago in Iraq, coinciding with the arrangements for the arrival of Iranian visitors to visit the Arbaeen of Imam Hussein in Karbala."[/size]
    [size=45]He adds, "However, this does not prevent Qaani from conducting visits to political leaders, which is something the latter used to do every time he entered Iraq."[/size]
    [size=45]In addition, a spokesman for Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq warned of any possible increase in the number of US forces in Iraq.[/size]
    [size=45]Representative Muhammad Al-Baldawi said, "The forces of the coordination framework and their representatives in the House of Representatives do not allow Iraqi lands to be military bases for the American forces to carry out activities that affect the security and sovereignty of the country."[/size]
    [size=45]He added, "What is rumored about plans for the expansion of foreign forces is under confirmation, but now there are real intentions for American expansion inside Iraq."[/size]
    [size=45]He pointed out that "it is necessary to set determinants for the American presence within a program and plan aimed at legalizing this presence and defining its features."[/size]
    [size=45]And he indicated that "according to the agreements with the previous government, the goal of the American presence was training and logistical support only.[/size]
