Iraq doesn’t plan to normalize ties with Israel in the near future, its Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein told a security conference in Bahrain over the weekend. “As for the question, is Iraq going to be part of the Abraham Accords soon? – in short, I can say no,” Hussein said in response to queries from participants at the conference IISS Manama Dialogue 2021 on Saturday. “This is a very difficult issue and has to do with many reasons. Of course, I am not here to explain the reasons, but the answer to this question is no,” Hussein said.

Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, in contrast, spoke in Manama of his country’s support for its ties with Israel and the Abraham Accords, under which those ties were forged in 2020. Other Abraham Accord countries include the United Arab Emirates, Morocco and Sudan. The Abraham Accords have also been viewed as a regional alliance against Iran. Zayani dismissed that view.
