[ltr]BAGHDAD / News Network Iraq , said deputy head of the President and the leader of a coalition of state law , Nuri al - Maliki that the United States has not implemented the Strategic Framework Agreement in the form correctly, which led to the control of "Daesh" many lands in Iraq, noting that the reform and the fight against corruption must be real and honest, not through slogans and chants, not through attacking the institutions of government and drop the prestige of the state, and the deployment of armed groups in Baghdad. This came during a dialogue conducted by the Monitor US site with al - Maliki on Wednesday evening ... and you have the text of the interview:
The Monitor: How would you describe the relationship with Baghdad , the United States now? It was exploit the agreement you signed with Washington? And how was the position in the recent crisis with Turkey?
Maliki: Our relationship with Washington going well, but we believe that the strategic framework agreement has not been implemented in the form correctly. This is what we said before the fall of Mosul, when we asked the United States targeting the headquarters of the guerrilla terrorist that were taken from the Anbar desert headquarters of the safe and its sanctuaries, but the American side did not respond to us, and invoked pretexts unrealistic, resulting in control of the "Daesh" many lands in Iraq. I think that the relationship with the United States remain important for the interest of Iraq and the region, and they are achievable and development of the implementation of the Joint Convention and address any problematic in its path. America has rejected the logic of the Turkish intervention in Iraq, but the Turkish policy envisions the possibility of reduction of reality and achieve expansion in Iraq.
The Monitor: Do you expect a change in Washington 's policy after the advent of Donald Trump to the presidency, in the form of impact on the ongoing conflict in the region?
Maliki: Washington public policy will remain the same, but the ways and mechanisms of implementation vary by who cling to power. It is true that the Republicans have more in Iraq , interesting, and who brought down the regime of Saddam Hussein and remain abreast of the political process as well, and it was good policy when it agreed to the withdrawal of the troops, and when they agreed to the partnership agreement, and we hope Mr. Trump and is receiving new duties to do the strategic agreement we signed, and where the economy and the policy of the oil and trade and the Army and Askar. And I say that Iraq needs this agreement with the US and the US needs to the American effort and expertise in various fields, and I hope the President Trump to do this Convention, because the Democrats did not try to be activated in the past, even though we asked them to do so. If they responded to our request for what was "Daesh" exists. We asked them a weapon to strike the island (area in western Iraq) , which was an introduction to the organization "Daesh" terrorist from Syria, but unfortunately did not cooperate with us and admitted afterwards that error.
The Monitor: Are you used "Daesh" continuation of the conflict and disputes in the region for a long time, especially Khalavkm with Turkey and Saudi Arabia? Are there other ways to end this conflict?
Maliki: In light of the continuing conflict and the ambitions of the major countries in the territory of the region, I think that the crisis will continue and will generate other crises, and this can not be terminated except through dialogue, respect for good neighborliness and non - interference in the affairs of others.Can not finish crises and conflicts through arms and dominance on the lands of others, and underline our commitment to resolve the crisis with Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and our desire to do so, and to achieve the best positive relations at various levels and good neighborly relations and interdependence of interests and determination.
The Monitor: You will be directed toward the popular crowd Syria in an official capacity after the liberation of Mosul "Daesh"? If yes, does it much will it cost Iraq at the international level, especially in the relationship with the United States of America?
Maliki: talk about the participation of the popular crowd in Syria premature, I do not think that now will happen, because the situation in Syria does not currently require intervention of the popular crowd, as we are still in need of the crowd in completing the liberation of Mosul process and the pursuit of what is left of "Daesh" gangs In which. If we can impose security and an end to "Daesh" cleanse our land from terrorism, not strange that we respond to help Syria in the face of "Daesh , " because this organization will return to us again if not definitively set aside in Syria.
The Monitor: It seems that the Sunni parties wary of the popular crowd, as well as questioning the historical settlement or national, how can reset the country 's problems after the "Daesh"? Is there a clear vision or an integrated project of reconciliation? Is there a role in the reconciliation project to the issue of the division of wealth and arrange its own laws , such as oil and gas law?
Maliki: I do not find there is a fear among Sunnis of the popular crowd, and the proof is that many of them engaged the crowd in his duties at the front, but it is trying to spread the fear is some of the parties that participated in the plot to enter the "Daesh," Today, after the defeat of "Daesh," trying to those parties provoke new crises and prevent pretexts for any rapprochement or the success of any project of reconciliation or compromise.
The settlement that we seek to contain the intellectual and organizational aspects and principles that we adopt for Iraq, including the country 's unity and rejection of sectarianism, and that the weapons only in the hands of the state, respect for Iraq 's sovereignty and non - interference in the affairs of others and do not allow others to interfere in our affairs, and optimal investment of wealth and equality, and so on of things are all completed, and we have their approval, which is the essence of the historic compromise.
The Monitor: If the Sunni parties decided to convert the western provinces to the territory, you will agree, being a constitutional requirement, or perhaps Taaradwnh of its connection to external agendas? What is your opinion about the unity of Iraq?
Maliki: Although support the unity of Iraq, but we do not oppose the establishment of the region because it is the seat of the Constitution. But we believe that the current conditions do not allow the establishment of these regions because they will be armed, and in the political, security and sectarian atmosphere tense, and this is a valid ground for the establishment of the regions.
The Monitor: How will the lists supported by al - Maliki in the upcoming election form, especially since the bulk of the members of the state law, they are also in the reform front? Is the front will enter the independent or as a list under the heading of state law? It will support the electoral lists represent the popular crowd?
Maliki: the rule of law is the block that we will enter the elections. We are currently reviewing the allied with us and who will run in the next election and selection, and there are a lot of forces known figures who have applied where you would like to join the coalition of state law, we have welcomed those who wanted to join, but according to the guidelines and conditions commensurate with the orientations of a coalition of state law and its objectives. The factions in relation to the popular crowd, I think that talk is premature because the crowd formations are still busy with military operations. Having put the end of the war, it will have a decision jointly or not, but this does not mean that the crowd would not have a voice in the political scene if the majority of its formations chose not to participate, because some factions exist within the rule of law , particularly the faction of Badr, and Soldiers Brigades of Imam, and the Al - Sayed martyrs. The Reform Front , they are not the electoral list, but merely collects and convergence between MPs from different blocs on common issues such as combating corruption and reforming the administrative conditions.
The Monitor: How has the demonstrations reform and reform on the front work of the Government of Haider al - Abadi? And how would you describe the performance of the latter? You will be part of the electoral your list?
Maliki: First, it gives his opinion in relation to the performance of the prime minister or his government is the people, either in relation to the demonstrations reform and its impact on the government, I think that it wants to correct government 's path will face challenges, and the Prime Minister called for a reform process within the government, and what happened in the House of Representatives It is a product of what he called for.
Moentinor: Do you still insist on the idea of the political majority? Is it possible to access the list of trans communities, under the domination of the religious parties and sectarian entities?
Maliki: Yes, we believe that the best solution for Iraq would emerge from internal crises is through the formation of a majority government able to heal the situation and restore the prestige of the state , which drop invited reform and anti - corruption. It is possible to access the blocks and lists of transient communities, and I find that the religious parties pose obstacle to the formation of those blocks and components cross-sects.
The Monitor: Are you going to be those based alternative for the National Alliance? And what is the fate of the divisions and differences within it , particularly between you and the Sadrists?
Maliki: nothing to do with the Government of the National Alliance of the majority, because we When we form a majority government, it was not in isolation from the National Alliance or the rest of the components of the forces, because it is not confined to a particular component or a specific range. We look forward to a government that includes all those who seek to build a home and solving all the problems of a strong government able to fulfill the tasks which will cost them, and in a position to meet the challenges faced by the country. The way was open for all components of the National Alliance , or some of them to be part of the political majority, and loves, can subscribe. I am optimistic that all the coalition blocks within the project will be the political majority, but rarely.
The Monitor: Is this perception intersects with the movement of Moqtada al - Sadr to reform, and the formation of a technocrat government and an end to the quota system? And what do you think in the last position of the popular crowd Act?
Maliki: We are with all those who seek to reform and battling corruption, but it must be real and honest claim, not through slogans and chants, not through attacking the institutions of government and drop the prestige of the state. From the looks of the reform and the fight against corruption, he has to respect the law, not to publish the armed groups in Baghdad and brandishing weapons and threatening those who oppose the formation of a technocrat government. Everyone must leave the language of threats and intimidation, and he has to take the dialogue approach which corrects what he sees as wrong and not in the interest of the people. But in relation to the law of the popular crowd, I think that the law passed by the House of Representatives meets the need, although we look forward to more of the equity of his blood and gave his soul a scapegoat for Iraq, answered the call after the start of the conspiracy against the country. The first phase was the enactment of the law and the second phase is the instruction to be established by the Commander in Chief of the armed forces because it is his responsibility.
The Monitor: Will oppose the Sunnis and al- Sadr, the popular crowd Act on the future of the political process and the project historic compromise?
Maliki: People crowd the project was approved by the House of Representatives, and will spend, I do not think that there is action that might get it, either in relation to a political settlement, we are waiting for the emergence of a Sunni reference its opinion paper submitted by the National Alliance. Upon agreement, we will go towards the consolidation of bases to be the course of action for all, and as soon as approval we will proceed together on procedural issues, such as the reconstruction of the cities and the return of displaced persons, and compensation for the victims and reforms in the political and legislative process.
The Monitor: What is the guarantee for not turning to the popular crowd is stronger than the state and its security institutions institution? And how you can separate the affiliation of the fighters from the former factions? What is the difference between converting PDF crowd to official institution and the integration between the components of the Iraqi armed forces?
Maliki: the popular crowd and under the law, has become a device to follow the security agencies in the state, and any power in this device will be in support of and support for the rest of the security services and armed forces. I think the crowd will be effective the popular device, if the same anti - terrorism device, and that its leaders are part of the political process and is keen on stability and impose law.
