Iraq's gov't just delivering messages instead of mediating: observers

Observers have noted that Iraq cannot show that it has a great role in the region as it only delivers messages rather than mediation, especially that it does not have the characteristics of a mediator.

Iraq, according to the observers, does not have any power to protect its airspace or waters as it’s unable to protect its oil tankers and its ports. Moreover, the Iraqi government had explicitly announced that it’s not a mediator, but just delivering messages.

The observers went on saying that Washington said it assigned Japan, as a mediator, to reach an understanding with Tehran, which consequently assigned Oman to be its mediator with Washington.

Iraq is aware that if the war is waged and Iran carries out its promises on closing the Strait of Hormuz, this will halt livelihood in Iraq and will have great consequences, they added.

Iraq totally depends on oil, they said. In case the war is waged, the exporting of oil via the gulf will stop.

Meanwhile, the situation is getting worse after news were circulated on creating a Washington-led Arab alliance, in which Israel will be involved as an active member, according to the observers.
