Maliki’s visit to Tehran has made him more loathed by the people of Iraq and more isolated among Iraqi political forces
According to reports obtained by the Iranian Resistance from Khamenei’s office and the regime’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), the prime objective behind Maliki’s trip to Tehran and meeting with Khamenei was to demonstrate to “all political forces in Iraq affiliated to the regime as well as all Shiite entities” that “Maliki’s premiership is fully approved by the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI)” and other forces “should be impelled to accept him”.
A report from Khamenei’s office reiterates, “We have always approved Maliki’s premiership, because he is a hundred percent in favor of IRI’s interests and is the best choice. However, his visit to Iran and meeting with the officials of the state is a message to others implying that Iran still believes that Maliki should be the next prime minister. When Maliki meets with His Excellency (Khamenei), that would mean to Mr. Ammar al-Hakim (leader of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq- ISCI) that we want Maliki (to be the prime minister); this is the meaning of the meeting.”
According to the obtained reports about Maliki’s meeting with Khamenei, “Maliki was given some ?courses of action on how to push other Shiite currents, especially the ISCI, to support him.” In the meetings, it was explained to Maliki “on which issues he should focus and what issues he should forbear from.”
The reports emphasize that the two main issues discussed with Nouri al-Maliki were “how to fully remove Iraq out of US dominance” and “talks about annihilation of the Monafeqin [derogatory term used by the Iranian regime for PMOI]. Maliki’s meeting with Jalili, Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, “concentrated on Monafeqin and their expulsion from Ashraf and Iraq.”
The solution put forward by the Islamic Republic is to increase pressures on Ashraf in the first stage and assume full control over it; Mr. Maliki was briefed in these meetings about the ways he should impose these pressures. In the second stage, the Monafeqin are to be moved to remote places, to two or three camps, away from the Iranian border to force them to return back to Iran.” This report adds that many issues were discussed in unofficial meetings or during “opportune times” since “all those accompanying Maliki were not trusted elements”.
In Maliki’s visit to Tehran, “preliminary agreements and understandings” were reached. “The parties agreed to form a ‘joint committee’ to carry out these agreements”; whereby, “Iraqi friends would be briefed on the suggestions and methods of the Islamic Republic in resolving the issues”. This committee, entirely under control of the terrorist Quds force, has immediately begun its work.
Upon the request of the regime, Maliki visited Moqtada al-Sadr in his residence in Qom. Reports indicate that “Sadr may again distance himself from Maliki; his coalition with Maliki is fragile as he gave in to this coalition only under Iran’s pressure”.
A final report on Maliki’s visit to Tehran reads: “As far as Maliki is concerned, he has accepted all our proposals and conditions… however, previous experience has shown that due to enormous problems Maliki faces inside Iraq and since he is no longer officially the prime minister, he therefore has no longer the authority to sign agreements and hence is unable to fulfill all his promises. However, the agreements will be recorded in the context of the joint committee so that they would be implemented once he comes to power”.
The truth is, however, that due to the increasing abhorrence of the Iraqi people, be it Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds or Arabs, of the religious fascism ruling Iran, Maliki’s visit to Tehran and his repugnant kowtow such as praying behind top henchman Hashemi Shahroudi, former head of the clerical regime’s judiciary responsible for the execution and deaths of thousands of prisoners, has significantly weakened Maliki’s position amongst Iraqi political forces and turned him into the most despised political figure in Iraq.
