A source in the Iraqi government revealed on Saturday that the Iraqi delegation, led by Prime Minister Muhammad Shiaa al-Sudani, would withdraw from the Cairo Peace Conference immediately if there was any Israeli representation.
The source stated that Prime Minister Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani confirmed with the Egyptian side that Israel would not have a representative at the Cairo peace conference before accepting his participation.
The source confirmed that the Iraqi delegation will withdraw if any representative of Israel is present.
Al-Sudani arrived in Cairo this morning to attend a “peace” conference regarding the war in Gaza, at the invitation of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi.
Media reports indicate that Tunisia and Algeria are boycotting the Cairo Summit in Egypt due to the attendance of an Israeli delegation.
According to Tunisian Radio Mosaique and Algerian newspaper Al-Shorouk, Israel will be sending a delegation to a conference that will also see the participation of the United States, Russia, and China. This comes amid a boycott by Tunisia and Algeria.
