    [size=45]In response to a question from Al-Hurra TV about whether any position related to the American presence in Iraq will be announced next week by the American and Iraqi sides, the official said that “there will be discussions about the American defense and security relationship as part of the discussions.”[/size]
    [size=45]“This is likely to be a very important part of our discussions,” she added.

    [size=45]Al-Shammari points out that “the most important point agreed upon is that the Sudanese will not raise the issue of the American withdrawal from Iraq after he expressed a concession regarding the establishment of a sustainable bilateral security relationship” between the two countries, describing it as “a very important matter.”[/size]

    The head of the Center for Political Thinking, Professor of Politics, says. General at the University of Baghdad, Ihsan Al-Shammari, said that there are a number of points agreed upon and disagreed upon between the two sides.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Shammari adds to Al-Hurra website that one of the most prominent points agreed upon between Washington and Baghdad relates to moving the relationship to a new path that includes not only the military security aspect, but also other educational, economic, financial, and diplomatic aspects, as well as supporting climate change and anti-corruption programs.[/size]

    [size=45]Al-Sudani is still unable to leave the thoughts of previous heads of government.
    Speaking of the “opportunity.” Al-Sudani presents his vision for the future of Iraqi-American relations
    . In an article published in Foreign Affairs magazine, the Iraqi Prime Minister, Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani, reviewed the road map for Iraqi-American relations, and his vision for the future. Focusing on the “opportunity” that must be invested, before his expected visit to the United States.
    Al-Sudani called for a “new phase” to protect the strategic partnership, to be “a phase that supports Iraq’s sovereignty and independence without abandoning the fruitful cooperation between Baghdad and Washington.”[/size]
    [size=45]The most important issue
    . Also on Thursday, a senior US State Department official said that the security and defense partnership between the United States and Iraq will be an important part of Biden’s talks with Sudanese, but it is not the focus of the visit.[/size]
    [size=45]The official, who spoke to journalists on condition of anonymity, added that Sudanese's visit will focus on economic relations, even as Washington and Baghdad are holding talks about ending the US-led military alliance in the country.[/size]
    [size=45]Washington and Baghdad began talks in January to reassess the presence of the US-led military coalition there.[/size]
    [size=45]The official suggested that these talks would lead to a second dialogue for joint security cooperation later this year.[/size]
    [size=45]Senior researcher at the Center for American Progress, Larry Korb, believes that “the first thing Biden and Al-Sudani must do is decide how long will American forces remain in Iraq?” What exactly are their rules of engagement regarding the use of military force?”[/size]
    [size=45]Korb, who previously worked as Assistant Secretary of Defense, added in an interview with Al-Hurra website, “The Iraqi Prime Minister is in an unenviable position. He needs the United States, but at the same time he does not want to antagonize Iran.”[/size]
    [size=45]Korb believes that “this is the most important issue, and the rest of the issues that will be discussed are not very sensitive or controversial.”[/size]
    [size=45]“The issue of possible escalation in the region between Israel and Iran will also be one of the files that the visit will discuss,” according to Korb.[/size]
    [size=45]Iran's influence
    During the first months of the Gaza war, Iranian-backed groups in Iraq, such as Kataib Hezbollah, repeatedly targeted US forces in the region, including an attack on a US base in Jordan near the border with Iraq and Syria in January that killed three. American soldiers and more than 40 others injured.[/size]
    [size=45]Before that, armed groups loyal to Iran carried out dozens of attacks against American forces deployed within the international coalition led by Washington to fight ISIS. In response, Washington carried out strikes against these factions.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Shammari points out that “there are a number of points of difference between Washington and Baghdad, perhaps the most prominent of which is related to Iranian influence, and this point could constitute a major bone of contention.”[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Shammari continues, “Al-Sudani will face great difficulty in dismantling this influence because he is already supported by Tehran’s allies.”[/size]
    [size=45]“Also, disarming the militias will be a difficult point of contention, given that the United States is pushing for stability in Iraq by ending these militias,” according to Al-Shammari.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Shammari points out that “Al-Sudani indicated in his last article that this issue will be gradual, and this will certainly not please Washington, which may think that it is just a maneuver.”[/size]
    [size=45]Energy Independence
    In her comment to Al Hurra Channel, the American official confirmed that the Iraqi-American talks will focus on educational exchange, energy and water, commercial investment by American companies in Iraq, and banking reforms.[/size]
    [size=45]It will also address cooperation to develop business and investment opportunities, increase commercial and financial transparency, and promote projects that will improve the services provided to the Iraqi people.[/size]
    [size=45]The American official said, “There will be an opportunity to talk about preserving cultural heritage, climate, and mitigating the effects of climate change through implementing water projects and increasing energy security for us and the Iraqis, as well as assisting them in their efforts to build their energy independence in the region and to be able to rely on themselves and their families.” “Their country has the resources to do more of that.”[/size]
    [size=45]The American official spoke about Iraq achieving progress with regard to electrical energy in terms of connecting Iraq to Jordan and Saudi Arabia and capturing waste gases in the atmosphere.[/size]
    [size=45]“We expect that by 2030 Iraq will be in a much better position to have the full range of resources, including largely self-sufficiency if they stay on track,” she said.[/size]
    [size=45]Regarding issues of the economy, stopping dependence on Iranian energy, dollar smuggling, and financial policies, Al-Shammari believes that there are still visions that have not been agreed upon between Baghdad and Washington.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Shammari continues to talk about the points of disagreement with Washington, “There is also a difference in views on human rights issues, as Washington finds that this issue has declined during the time of the current government.”[/size]
    [size=45]Baghdad is also likely to ask Washington to ease restrictions on the flow of revenues from Iraqi oil sales.[/size]
    [size=45]Since 2003, Iraqi funds have been kept in an account within the US Federal Reserve System and are dealt with at the request of Baghdad.[/size]
    [size=45]Since late 2022, Washington has restricted its financial transfers to Iraq to prevent money laundering for the benefit of Iran and Syria.[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Shammari stresses, “The Sudanese must develop an approach that works to disengage Iraq from Iran, and this is very important, and also adhere to the controls followed by the Federal Bank.”[/size]
    [size=45]What is required of Baghdad?
    Corp believes that “Iraq should not be involved at all in helping any of the armed groups in the region, such as Hamas, the Houthis, Hezbollah, and the rest of the militias loyal to Tehran.”[/size]
    [size=45]“The most important thing is for Iraq to remain outside of the conflict currently taking place in the region and for Sudanese to prevent, as much as possible, Iran from using Iraqi territory in any offensive maneuvers in the region,” according to Korb.[/size]
    [size=45]On the other hand, Al-Shammari believes that “the most prominent files that will be addressed are related to the security aspect, as there will be a bilateral security agreement that will determine the form of the relationship between the two sides and the form of the American presence inside Iraq.”[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Shammari also expects to sign some memoranda on aspects of strengthening precautionary measures in financial policy.[/size]
    [size=45]However, Al-Shammari believes that “what comes after the visit will be the biggest challenge for the Sudanese and his government, given that the armed factions are concerned as a result of the Sudanese’s pledges to gradually dismantle their weapons.”[/size]
    [size=45]He adds, "This will create problems and hinder all the results that Iraq reaches through bilateral agreements with Washington."[/size]
