 The adviser to the European Center for Combating Terrorism, Emad Allou, warned Tuesday of catastrophic repercussions for the Iraqi economy and society in the event of any war between the United States and Iran, pointing out that the two sides seek to turn Iraq into a field of interests liquidation.

 "Iraq will be the loser of a possible war between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran because of the two parties' influence in Iraq," Allou told the news agency.

Iranian official: Trump head crazy and approaching his ships danger to them
(International: Al Furat News) The special assistant to the President of the Iranian Parliament for International Affairs Hussein Amir Abdullahian, that the belief of US President Donald Trump that he can force Tehran to negotiate by force is only illusions.
The Iranian official said in an interview with the CNN network on Monday, commenting on a tweet in which Trump said that the war against the United States would be the end of Tehran, said that the US president wants to control the Islamic Republic with threats and threats, but 40 years have passed since the Islamic Revolution In Iran, it has shown that it can not be spoken to in terms of threats. 
"If he thinks he can outperform Iran and force it to negotiate from an unequal position by sending some aircraft carriers and bombers to the region, he makes a mistake, and when their ships approach us, that is a danger to them," he said. Firmly ".
With regard to Trump's invitation to Iranian leaders to contact him, Abdullahi stressed that Trump can not talk about any contacts with Tehran unless he leaves the tone of threat and force and unless he returns to the nuclear agreement, while ensuring that his successor in the White House does not withdraw. 
"Trump believes that he is directing a weapon to the head of Iran through sanctions and is working to defeat our economy, but all that is happening in his imagination only, now he wants to contact him. 
The Iranian official pointed to the conflict of opinion within the White House, accusing some officials, primarily National Security Adviser John Bolton, of seeking war, adding that Trump personally pursues an unstable and unbalanced policy, and as a result, "Iran receives conflicting signals, He is the master of the White House. "
The comments came against the background of escalating tension in the Middle East between the United States and Iran, where Washington has taken a series of military actions under the pretext of increasing the risk that Tehran or its allied regional factions attack US forces in the region.

US war with Iran is delayed

[Follow-up] 
"The consequences of misinterpretation: postponing the US war with Iran," the title of the article "Eurasia Daily," about what is said to be a misinterpretation of intelligence that led to the Gulf region on the brink of all-out war.
On May 17, 2019, King Salman called on the Arab leaders of the League of Arab States, the Gulf Cooperation Council and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to hold an emergency summit in Mecca on June 30 to discuss the deterioration of relations with Iran. 

Iranian officials said on May 15 they were "ready for war." But the next day, the Wall Street Journal assumed that the escalation of tension between the United States and Iran was a "misunderstanding" of intelligence from both sides.

The new US intelligence data, according to the newspaper, indicate that Tehran thought the United States was about to attack it and reacted to the imminent danger of placing its allies in the region on high alert, including Hezbollah in Lebanon and many Shiite militias in Iraq and Syria. This made Washington believe that Iran was planning an attack on the Americans and their allies, pushing the White House to send an additional carrier group to the Gulf and partly evacuating its diplomats from Baghdad. Thus, according to the Wall Street Journal, Tehran's actions were defensive in nature, but interpreted in the United States in the wrong way.

According to the newspaper, Donald Trump appears to have told his administration, including Defense Minister Patrick Chanahan, that he does not want a military confrontation with Iran. Thus, the military threat against Iran by sending an aircraft carrier appeared to be a step from Trump to raise the stake in the big game similar to the one he did against North Korea in October 2017, sending a group of Ronald Reagan carriers to the coast of that country. 

However, it is clear from the Saudi leadership that the political and economic pressure on Iran is not diminishing. The United States continues to rally its allies in the region against Iran.

BAGHDAD: Iraq will send delegations to Tehran and Washington over the next few days in an attempt to ease tensions in the region, Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said on Tuesday.

Since then, the US has imposed economic sanctions on Iran. US President Donald Trump warned on Monday that Iran would be met with “great force” if it attacked American interests in the Middle East.

      Iraq aims to ease US-Iran tensions
      Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said Baghdad will send teams to Tehran and Washington to calm tensions. (File/AFP) Updated 22 May 2019 ARAB NEWS May 21, 201915:48     Follow @arabnews Iraqi delegations to visit both countries “US and Iranian officials have assured us that they do not want to go to war,” says PM       BAGHDAD: Iraq will send delegations to Tehran and Washington over the next few days in an attempt to ease tensions in the region, Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said on Tuesday.

      “US and Iranian officials have assured us that they do not want to go to war. So we will send delegations to Washington and Tehran.”
      Tensions started to rise between the two countries after the US withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, otherwise known as the Iran nuclear deal, in May 2018.
      Since then, the US has imposed economic sanctions on Iran. US President Donald Trump warned on Monday that Iran would be met with “great force” if it attacked American interests in the Middle East.
      Iraq has been a battleground for the US and Iran since 2003. Both countries enjoy significant influence in the region.
      Iraqi leaders believe that their country could become the first confrontation zone if war breaks out between the two nations.
      “Iraq is in the stage of transferring messages between Washington and Tehran as we try to defuse the crisis between the two sides,” Abdul Mahdi said.
      “It is our responsibility to defend Iraq and its people, and secure them from the threat of war.”
      During a visit to Baghdad earlier this month, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Abdul Mahdi that targeting any US interests in Iraq will be dealt with militarily.
      A Katyusha rocket was fired on Sunday into Baghdad’s Green Zone, which houses government offices and embassies, including the US Embassy.
      The rocket fire came days after the US evacuated staff from Iraq, citing threats from Iran. It was not clear who was behind the attack, which caused no casualties.
      The attack “embarrassed” the Iraqi government, which has pledged to secure diplomatic missions and protect US interests, senior Iraqi officials told Arab News.
      The Iraqi president, prime minister and speaker of Parliament, as well as heads of political blocs and commanders of armed factions linked to Iran, have held meetings over the past few days.
      “We’re working together to invest our relations with the two parties (the US and Iran) in order to ease the tension and find peaceful solutions,” Ahmad Al-Assadi, head of an Iraqi parliamentary bloc, told Arab News.
      “The outbreak of war between America and Iran will cause great damage to the entire region. Iraq will be the biggest loser because it’s in the heart of the storm.”
      During the meetings, political leaders and representatives of armed factions linked to Iran agreed on a 12-point document that aims “to keep Iraq away from the ongoing struggle between the US and Iran by all possible means.” Al-Assadi said the Iraqi Parliament will vote on the approved document.
      Dozens of paramilitary troops associated with Iran operate in Iraq, and present the biggest challenge for the Iraqi government and political leaders.
      “We agreed that no armed faction is allowed to ignite the war inside Iraq for any reason, and whoever violates this deal will be considered our enemy,” one of the leaders linked to Iran, who participated in the meetings, told Arab News.
      “We don’t want to be blamed for this war, but the situation may change if the US insists on starting this war inside Iraq.”
