After two short visits to Jordan and Kuwait, Iraqi Prime Minister Muhammad Shia al-Sudani begins today, Tuesday, a visit to Iran, which comes in light of attempts to contain differences over the bombing carried out by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards on sites and headquarters of Iranian Kurdish parties active in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.
Yesterday, Monday, the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that Al-Sudani will visit Tehran (Tuesday) at the official invitation of Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi. “The visit aims to follow up the bilateral dialogue between the two countries on economic, commercial and political issues, and (to participate in) the joint higher committee between the two countries,” said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani, in a statement. He added that the two sides will discuss water files, borders, and the Iranian bombardment targeting northern Iraq, referring to the strikes that affected the areas where the Iranian Kurdish opposition parties are spread.
On the other hand, Al-Sudani announced, yesterday evening, the recovery of huge amounts of cash from the Iraqi dinar and the US dollar, which were part of what was described as the “theft of the century”, which was revealed in its last days by the government of his predecessor, Mustafa Al-Kazemi. He explained that the recovered amount amounted to 182 billion out of a total of about 4 trillion Iraqi dinars (about 2.5 billion dollars), or about 5 percent of the total amount stolen. Al-Sudani said that the recovered money “is the first payment,” stressing that “the full amount will be recovered.”
