    [size=52]Washington is committed to supporting Kurdistan after meeting with Barzani... and the Sudanese visit is still pending[/size]

    [size=45]Baghdad/ Tamim Al-Hassan[/size]
    [size=45]The American media paid attention to the visit of the Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Masrour Barzani, to Washington and his meeting with senior officials there, while the Shiite forces inside continue to reassure the United States.[/size]
    [size=45]It has become almost certain that the forces of the coordinating framework agree on a “long-term” American stay in Iraq, even with the withdrawal of combat forces from the country.[/size]
    [size=45]Western reports indicate the possibility of transferring American forces from Baghdad to the Kurdistan region the day after Barzani's meeting with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.[/size]
    [size=45]After meeting with Barzani, Blinken expressed his country's continued support for the Kurdistan region, as it is the cornerstone of America's comprehensive relationship with Iraq.[/size]
    [size=45]Blinken wrote in a post on the “X” platform, “We met with Masrour Barzani, Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government, to discuss the American partnership with them and encourage continued cooperation with the federal government.”[/size]
    [size=45]The Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government, Masrour Barzani, met in Washington, DC, last Monday, with Blinken, a day after his arrival in the United States.[/size]
    [size=45]The US Secretary of State explained, “The United States still supports the steadfast Kurdistan region as the cornerstone of our 360-degree relationship with Iraq.”[/size]
    [size=45]He stated that “the United States’ support for the Kurdistan government will continue at a rate of (360) degrees,” explaining, “The Kurdistan Region is a model region in the Middle East, so Washington values ​​its partnership with the Kurdistan Region.”[/size]
    [size=45]Masrour Barzani arrived last Saturday evening in Washington, DC, in response to an official invitation from the US administration.[/size]
    [size=45]The Prime Minister is accompanied by a government delegation consisting of the Minister of Peshmerga, the official of the Foreign Relations Department, and a number of other government officials, where he will hold a series of meetings with senior American officials in the White House, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Congress.[/size]
    [size=45]Official statements said that the meetings will focus on ways to strengthen bilateral relations between the Kurdistan region and the United States, in addition to discussing the latest developments in Iraq and the region.[/size]
    [size=45]This visit comes at a time when Baghdad announces the imminent withdrawal of American forces from Iraq, while Mithal Al-Alusi, a politician and former deputy of Al-Mada, says, “This decision is not a Shiite decision, but there are other parties that have other positions.”[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Alusi points out that American circles “clearly say to rational people and those who understand diplomacy that our bases are in Anbar, Ain al-Assad, and in Kurdistan, in Al-Harir and elsewhere, and that our bases are not in Shiite lands and are not in the lands of the coordination framework, and therefore they do not have the right to talk much about these sites.” .[/size]
    [size=45]The United States deploys about 2,500 soldiers in Iraq as part of the international coalition established in 2014 to combat ISIS.[/size]
    [size=45]The Middle East Transparent website suggested that most of the American forces would be withdrawn or transferred to the Kurdistan region without harming the interests of the United States in Iraq, while it expected that Washington would have more influence in Baghdad, but without the presence of its forces.[/size]
    [size=45]According to the report, it is still unclear whether Al-Sudani (the Prime Minister) himself favors the withdrawal of coalition forces, or whether he only aims to “appease the angry parties within the ruling Shiite coalition.”[/size]
    [size=45]Two weeks ago, Baghdad brought Washington back to the negotiating table again after suspending the dialogues for several days, due to the bombing of an American base in Jordan last month.[/size]
    [size=45]Foreign Minister Fouad Hussein said, “The negotiations are continuing and the second round has ended, and we hope to have other rounds.”[/size]
    [size=45]Hussein suggested that there would be a round of discussions in Washington during the visit of Prime Minister Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani to the United States.[/size]
    [size=45]Washington extended to Sudanese more than one invitation to visit the United States and meet with President Biden, but they were invitations without dates.[/size]
    [size=45]It is believed that the failure to set a date for Al-Sudani until now is because Washington is waiting for more guarantees that the Prime Minister must provide regarding curbing the factions and Iran’s dominance in Iraq.[/size]
    [size=45]Gradually, the loud voices calling for the “quick expulsion” of American forces began to decline, especially with Parliament’s failure to legislate a law in this regard.[/size]
    [size=45]A few days ago, Muhammad al-Sudani, Prime Minister, informed a delegation from the US Congress that visited him in Baghdad about the importance of “partnership with the United States” after the withdrawal of forces from Iraq.[/size]
    [size=45]As part of the policy of de-escalation with Washington adopted by the coordination framework, Ammar al-Hakim, leader of the Wisdom Movement, refused to use weapons to “destabilize Iraq” during a meeting with the US ambassador to Baghdad, Alina Romanski.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Hakim’s speech came after the return of threats from the group calling itself the “Iraqi Resistance” to resume attacks against American forces.[/size]
    [size=45]Akram Al-Kaabi, who leads the Al-Nujaba faction, which claims to be one of the resistance factions, said that the American forces “will not withdraw through negotiation.”[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Kaabi considered that the current calm is only a temporary tactic for the resistance to reposition and spread, but rather it is “the calm before the storm.”[/size]
