Sources to Al Mayadeen: Al-Kadhimi stipulates Israeli absence from "Democracy Summit"
An Iraqi official source confirms to Al Mayadeen that the Iraqi Prime Minister refuses to participate in the "Summit for Democracy" in the presence of “Israel”.
Today, Wednesday, an Iraqi official source confirmed to Al Mayadeen that Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi refused to partake in the “Summit for Democracy” organized by the United States of America if "Israel" participated in it.
The source added that "Iraq is the only Arab country participating in this Summit that brings together 110 countries," noting that Al-Kadhimi stipulated that “Israel” does not participate, and “he got what he wanted.”
It is worth noting that the United States is set to host on 9-10 December a video conference under the title "Summit for Democracy" in which leaders of many countries, businessmen, and a group of human rights advocates will participate. Several countries, including Russia and China, were excluded from the event.
In a joint article published by the American newspaper The National Interest, the Russian and Chinese ambassadors to the United States expressed Moscow and Beijing's rejection of US President Joe Biden's Summit scheduled to be held in early December.
