Iraq rules out normalization with Israel

Iraqi President Barham Salih stated Baghdad will not normalize diplomatic relations with Israel. He stressed establishing regional peace would not be possible without recognizing the rights of the Palestinians.

In an interview with Al-Jazeera, the Iraqi president denied any relation between Baghdad and Tel Aviv.

Saying that Iraq is committed to defending the Palestinian cause and the rights of the Palestinian people, he added, “Without recognizing the legitimate rights of the Palestinians, establishing regional peace would not be possible.”

The issue of normalizing Baghdad’s ties with Tel Aviv has not been raised by the Iraqi government at all, the Iraqi president added.

Salih also called the upcoming elections in Iraq an opportunity for Iraqis, saying that any alternative to elections would cause chaos.

The current situation in Iraq is unacceptable and unstable, and it is time for Iraqis to enjoy a free and dignified life by forming a strong system of government after all difficult years, he noted, adding

Iraq must either be a scene of conflict for others, or it must be a bridge for economic, trade, and infrastructure projects.
