Iraqi Politician: Certain Arab States Seeking Failure of Iraqi Gov't
TEHRAN (FNA)- A prominent Iraqi politician said on Tuesday that some Arab countries, in collaboration with some political factions in Iraq's parliament, are seeking to portray the Baghdad government as "incompetent" and prepare the ground for the government's collapse.
Speaking to FNA on Tuesday, a senior member of Iraq's State of Law Coalition Mohammad al-Sahyood unveiled foreign states' involvement in a plot to portray the Baghdad government as incompetent.
"Some Arab countries want the Nouri al-Maliki's government to collapse and they have increased their financial and spiritual efforts since long time ago to the very same end," the politician stated.
He stressed that some political factions in the parliament are trying to undermine the parliament's confidence in the government.
Meantime, Sahyood said that these efforts will remain futile since the government has been elected by people.
The relations between Iraq and its Southern neighbors are deteriorating after Iraq's fugitive vice president, Tariq al-Hashimi, visited some Arab states last week.
Hashimi is wanted by Baghdad authorities on charges of terrorism.
