Prime Minister, Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani, yesterday, Monday, discussed with the new European Union Ambassador to Iraq, Thomas Seiler, developments in the situation in the Palestinian territories, while Iraq called for an urgent meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to unify the position regarding the Israeli aggression against our Palestinian people.
The Prime Minister's media office stated, "Al-Sudani received the new European Union ambassador to Iraq, Thomas Seiler," offering "congratulations to him on assuming his duties as European Union ambassador to Iraq."
Al-Sudani discussed with the European ambassador "developments in the situation in the Palestinian territories," calling for "the need for the European Union to play a decisive role in implementing international resolutions that affirm the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people."
A statement from the ministry stated, “During the call, the two sides discussed the new situation in the Palestinian arena,” and Fouad Hussein affirmed “Iraq’s firm position, as people and government, toward the Palestinian issue, and its standing by the Palestinian people in achieving their aspirations and obtaining their full legitimate rights, and that injustice and the usurpation of these rights... "They cannot produce sustainable peace."
The two ministers stressed - according to the statement - "the necessity of holding an urgent meeting of the ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Countries to discuss the war and its dimensions. The two sides also touched on some issues related to bilateral relations and the security agreement between the two countries."
Meanwhile, the leader of the Sadrist movement, Mr. Muqtada al-Sadr, called for a peaceful million-man demonstration in support of the Palestinian cause.
Mr. Al-Sadr said in a blog post on the “X” platform: “International terrorism has gathered against our loved ones and our people in beloved Palestine. Oh God, divide them and bring them together. Rather, it is our duty, we, the Iraqi mujahideen resisting the American occupation, and every lover of the Palestinian cause, to go out with peaceful million-man demonstrations.” United in the square of reform and the oppressed (Tahrir Square), so that the voice of jihad may rise from the beloved Iraqi capital, Baghdad, and reach the entire world.”
He added: "Let us burn the Israeli flags, raising the Palestinian flags side by side with the Iraqi flag. May this demonstration be to destroy and disperse them, and to terrify the great evil, America, which supports Zionist terrorism against our loved ones in Palestine, and may the Palestinian lands and Holy Jerusalem return to the confines of truth, and truth is above and beyond it." .
He continued: "Our time to demonstrate is next Friday, after a unified Friday prayer, with two million marching from all governorates to prove to the corrupt and oppressors that we continue to support reform and resistance."
In a related context, the President of the Islamic Supreme Council, Sheikh Hammam Hamoudi, and the National Security Advisor, Qasim Al-Araji, discussed supporting the government effort and the repercussions of the “Al-Aqsa Flood.”
Hammoudi’s media office stated that the latter received National Security Advisor Qassem Al-Araji, and they discussed developments in the national arena and the repercussions of the “Al-Aqsa Flood” operations and their impact on overturning the equations of the conflict, indicating that “the meeting reviewed the overall political and security situation in the country.”
"Both sides praised the heroism of the Palestinian people and the qualitative victories they achieved," pointing out "the importance of maintaining the momentum of moral support, to put an end to Zionist crime."
