#IRAQ: Foreign Minister Says Iraq Won't Join Others in Recognizing Israel

[world politics news]

Iraq doesn’t plan to normalize ties with Israel in the near future, its Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein told a security conference in Bahrain over the weekend.

“As for the question, is Iraq going to be part of the Abraham Accords soon? – in short, I can say no,” Hussein said in response to queries from participants at the conference IISS Manama Dialogue 2021 on Saturday.

Other Abraham Accord countries include the United Arab Emirates, Morocco and Sudan. 

The Accord is viewed by many as a regional bulwark against Iran. Iraqi politics features several pro-iran parties. Such an agreement might be very difficult to get through Iraq's Parliament, even if it's leaders were inclined to sign it.
