The Iraqi Nujaba Movement reaffirmed its backing for Sadrist leader Muqtada al-Sadr’s decision to call for the closing of the US embassy in Baghdad and the withdrawal of all foreign soldiers from the country.
In an exclusive interview, Haider Al-Lami, a member of the political bureau of the movement, stated: “Since 2003, the American embassy in Baghdad has been planning to restructure Iraq and tear apart its social fabric.” As a result, the movement supports Al-Sadr’s efforts to close it, provided that the issue is pertinent to the movement’s goals. The “Country.”
Al-Lami claimed that the Ain al-Assad base and other bases pose no more danger than the embassy in Baghdad. This is because these bases harbor members of the CIA and the Israeli Mossad, whose presence is deemed more perilous than that of combat forces.
In addition to being a military barracks remote from diplomatic operations, he noted that “this embassy does not apply to the terms of the agreement in Vienna” and that “all the American bases located on Iraqi territory do not carry any legal basis that regulates their presence.”
He emphasized that no party has the right to legitimize the establishment of American bases on Iraqi soil, especially after the decision made by the House of Representatives to remove all foreign forces from the country.
