Maliki: Fall of Mosul was a “conspiracy”

On Saturday, Iraqi President’s deputy and former Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki said that the fall of the city of Mosul in the hands of ISIS a few months ago was “a conspiracy” and that the Iraqi army “was not defeated, but it withdrew” under an agreement between certain, unspecified parties.

During a press conference held in the city of Nasiriyah, southern Iraq—attended by IraqiNews.com correspondent—al-Maliki stated, “The Iraqi army did not fight or clash with the ISIS gangs in Mosul,” pointing out that what happened was “a prior agreement placed in a joint operations room between some political parties to overthrow the city”.

Al -Maliki did not name the intended, but pointed out that these parties are the same that once described the Iraqi army as “the Safavid, Shiite and Sectarian”, and that some of them issued a circular urging not to fight ISIS as it came to “fight Shiites and al-Maliki”.

Al -Maliki added, “A section of the military units and commanders in Mosul withdrew before the night of ISIS attack on the city under a planned agreement, while others withdrew during the attack.”

Aggiedad talks about triggers.

Aggiedad77 And if this is the truth, they are making some very worthwhile gains regarding Article 140 at the same time, the ownership of Kirkuk an area that has been in dispute for a number of years. Any way you look at this agreement it is a WIN WIN WIN for the Kurds…and a WIN I think for all of Iraq because it triggers the HCL in the end as well as Article 140 resolution. Of course triggering these two big events also SHOULD trigger things on more of an international level for the world.

 

UN: Inclusive Political Process is Critical

As Iraq struggles to deal with the increasing security threat of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) as well as with dire financial and humanitarian conditions, the United Nations envoy to the country has cited an inclusive political process as vital to finding comprehensive solutions.
In an interview with UN Radio, Nickolay Mladenov, head of the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI), said that there is “general agreement,” not just in the UN but in Iraq as well, that the security element of dealing with ISIL is one part of the solution, but is not the comprehensive solution to the problems facing the country.
“What also needs to happen is a political process, and a political process that allows for the various communities of Iraq to come back together,” Mr. Mladenov stressed.
“The last decade has seen a lot of violence that has been driven by divisive politics, that [in turn] has been driven by the communities looking more inwardly rather than working together, and it is time now to address that,” he added.
Indeed, he said, the new Government in Iraq is inclusive of all the political parties, and is embarking on an agenda of addressing some of the long-standing grievances that exist within Iraqi society, including those related to poverty, security, participation in decision-making and revenue-sharing.
As such, the UN is working “intensely” with the Government of Iraq, as well as with Kurdish authorities and with various groups on the ground to find where agreement can be reached on security, political and social solutions, and, ultimately, pushing for those agreements to be implemented, Mr. Mladenov said.
“Our role really in this process – what I think is fundamentally the role of the United Nations around the world – is to bring people together, to facilitate dialogue, and to come up with proposals for solutions that could work on the ground, and to help implement them,” he said.

BAGHDAD / NINA / The Turkish Prime Minister Ahmed Dawood Oglu confirmed on Thursday that Turkey will always be with Iraq and considers its stability as the stability of Turkey.

He said at a news conference with House Speaker Salim al-Jubouri that Iraq is an example of democracy in the region, because it itself chose its representative, and when we look at the Iraqi individual we do not look at his doctrine and nationality.

He added: “We saw solidarity among Iraqis against sectarianism and this is a good step to be removed from Iraq, and we took the decision to work together against terrorism anywhere, whether in Turkey or Iraq or Syria,” noting that “terrorist organizations pose a threat in Iraq and the region and we will cooperate against all terrorist organizations.

He Davutoglu: “We agreed that the next meeting of the Council of strategic cooperation will be next month in Iraq, as we agreed that Parliament will approve the agreements to be concluded between the two countries.”

For his part, the Speaker of the House of Representatives said that Iraq and Turkey will open new horizons for relations that will contribute to improving things in these two countries and the region .
