Hussein al-Karawi, a member of the popular movement for the Belt and Road, said on Thursday that Iraq has the possibility of heading towards the eastern camp and moving away from US economic hegemony, and taking appropriate decisions to deter US forces and end their presence inside Iraq without thinking about the economic consequences for Washington.

 Al-Karawi told Al-Maalouma that “political forces must move to put an end to the American transgressions on the Iraqi people, the security services and the Popular Mobilization, and this requires a unified position from the resistance forces to pressure the political parties to take decisions that would end the American presence inside Iraq.”

He added that “America continues its violations and crimes inside Iraq, and this requires taking deterrent measures to stop these repeated attacks against the Iraqi people.”

He pointed out that “Iraq can not link its economy to the American side and head towards the eastern camp alongside Russia, China, Iran and other Asian countries, and take decisions that ensure the removal of the American occupier from Iraq without thinking or fearing any economic measures that Washington may take against Baghdad.” Finished 25n
