Saudi Arabia Worried of JASTA Law

“Razzak Al-Haidari” a member of the Iraqi parliament’s foreign relations committee said: one of the factors that had the Saudis want to establish new relations in the region with countries like Iraq, Iran, and other countries was U.S President Donald Trump’s recent stance against Islamic countries.

This explains why Saudi Arabia is worried about the “JASTA” law, as it signals major changes in the region, from which Saudi Arabia is not to be excluded.

He also explained that Saudi Arabia is currently not ready to have talks with Iran, but it knows full well that the only door to relations with Iran, is Iraq, especially since many of Iraq’s officials have very close relations with Iran.
This Badr Organization representative in Parliament stated that he had a meeting with the Saudi committee on the sidelines of the Asian Parliamentary Assembly in Cambodia in November, 2016, and he clearly felt Saudi Arabia’s worries of America’s “JASTA” law.

Razzaq al-Haidari said that the government of Iraq must make these new developments work in its own interests, because in international relations, preserving one’s interests is a priority, and Iraq can use these positive developments with Saudi Arabia to improve matters for Iraq’s people.

He also said that he is personally optimistic about Saudi Arabia’s movements towards Iraq, and the fact that Saudi channels have relayed that they are ready to open a new page in political and economic relations, and open new routes, airline flights, and companies, will all be positively reflected in the battle for Mosul.

Al-Haidari also confirmed that this new position of Saudi Arabia and Persian Gulf Countries will undoubtedly result in stability in the region and in Iraq.

Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister, Adel al-Jubeir, after months of tensions with Baghdad due to the meddling of the country’s former ambassador Thamer al-Sabhan, visited Baghdad last week carrying a more friendly tone, and met with Iraqi officials, which analysts saw as meaningful.

Many political analysts believe that Donald Trump’s green light for Saudi Arabia is merely limited to the plundering and theft of the country’s riches, and that the “JASTA” law will indeed have the country’s rulers by the neck.

This is why analysts are hopeful that the Saudis rethink their regional politics soon so that they can provide stability for the region, thus putting behind the time when Western countries could pressure the region’s countries.
