The Local Authorities Of Anbar Refuses To Accept The Anti-Iranian Armed Groups
Tribal leaders and commanders of the Popular Mobilization Organization (PMU) in Anbar province of Iraq announced that this province is not ready to accept anti-Iranian armed groups.
While there are talks about the plan to transfer anti-Iranian terrorist groups to the far west of Iraq in Anbar province, the representatives and heads of tribes and commanders of Hashd al-Shaabi (PMU) in this province emphasized their opposition to this plan.
The representatives, heads of tribes and commanders of the Popular Mobilization Organization in Anbar province of Iraq emphasized that this province is not ready to accept a new problem and the transfer of anti-Iran armed groups to this province.
Abdul Wahab Al-Bilawi, a member of the Anbar Tribal Sheik Council, also stated that such a plan is completely rejected and absolutely unacceptable and added: “We do not want the province to be involved in international conflicts, while these militants cause security problems in the province.”
These words were mentioned while the Iraqi Foreign Minister, Fuad Hussein, stated yesterday before his visit to Iran, that the Iraqi government has started the process of transferring anti-Iranian armed groups from areas close to Iran’s borders to camps far from the border as part of the security agreement between Tehran and Iran.
It is worth mentioning that the Iran’s deadline for the Iraqi government to disarm terrorist groups in the Kurdistan region ends on September 19, 2023.
Recently, the deputy commander of the IRGC said in an interview with an Iranian media outlet that “we [Iran] expect from our brothers in the Kurdistan region to show brotherliness, because providing terrorists with safe haven in that region, which has become a source of operations against our country, is not consistent with brotherliness or good neighborliness.”
In this regard, Iraqi Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein arrived in Tehran on September 13 and met and discussed with Hossein Amirabdollahian, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran. Fuad Hussein emphasized that the central government of Iraq has fully committed to the Iran-Iraq security agreement and the border security program and the withdrawal of terrorists from the border areas will be carried out by September 15.
