Storyline


Iraq is not a battlefield for other countries, said Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi during a press conference on Tuesday in response to U.S. President Trump's recent comments, saying that it was important to keep a U.S. military presence in Iraq so that Washington can keep a close eye on Iran.

Such comments have been met with strong opposition from Iraq. During the press conference, Mahdi stressed that Iraq refuses to be used to bring harm to other countries.

"Some people say that the mission of these U.S. troops is to attack neighbors of Iraq such as Iran. We do not accept such an idea, and the Iraqi constitution will not allow this. Iraq is not a battlefield for other countries," said Mahdi.

This is not the only clash that was recently seen between the U.S. and Iraq.

The security situation in northern Iraq has gradually improved since the country's victory against extremist groups. Yet a recent video showing some U.S. soldiers appearing in the surrounding areas of Mosul has again stirred up the situation.

Witnesses say that the U.S. military was trying to pass a checkpoint when they were stopped by the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), an Iraqi militia. The U.S. military eventually walked away, but the video was later released by the PMF, who called the action a "provocation".

The PMF has played an important part in the country's fight against the extremist groups, and they've also been involved heavily in the defense work deployed in western and northern Iraq, making great efforts at preventing infiltrations around the border areas. Because of the PMF's close relationship with Iran, the militia has developed a tense relationship with the U.S.

Some analysts believe such an incident is a test done by the U.S., and the U.S. will strengthen its influence in Iraq and leave some troops in the country. Analysts also fear that since the forces in northern Iraq have very diverse backgrounds, if the U.S. is to send ground forces again, new instabilities will be injected into the country.

"This is a political incident. Many parties now wish that the (United Nations) Security Council could reach a decision or political will to take the international coalition out of Iraq," said Saeed Al-Jayashi, an Iraqi security expert.

While analysis continues, the incident has largely subsided with the mediation by the Iraqi Security Forces.
