In her briefing to the Security Council on the situation in Iraq

, Plasschaert said

that "the negative aspects of Iraqi political life are still repeating themselves in an apparently continuous cycle of zero-sum policy," noting that "Iraqis are still waiting for a political class seeking instead Enough with outdated power battles until they roll up their sleeves to make progress in achieving the country’s long list of outstanding domestic priorities.”

She acknowledged that Iraq is not the only country facing a protracted process of government formation, but it is better for political leaders not to hide behind this argument, as it distracts from what is at stake, stressing that this pretext justifies the political blockage at a time when unaffiliated armed groups launch The state's missiles are free and clear, and it succeeds in impunity.

"What does it take to realize that this is an absolutely untenable situation?" she asked.

And Blackshart pointed out that "missile diplomacy is reckless actions, with potentially devastating consequences," noting that "Iraq does not need armed rulers who establish themselves as leaders," stressing the critical importance of confirming the authority of the state and diagnosing the perpetrators.

Regarding Kurdistan, Plasschaert said that "the divisions in the region have deepened, which has negatively affected the population," noting that "the neighboring countries are violating Iraq's sovereignty and the security of its territory."

Political researcher Mujahid Al-Taie wrote - on his Twitter account - that "Blackshart talked about the danger of the continuous decline of the state and its failure to carry out its duties, but the interesting thing is that she did not mention (terrorism) as the danger, but rather the militias and political struggles for power and the failure of the political class in managing the state." .

But the interesting thing is that she did not mention “terrorism” as the danger;

@JeanineHennis' speech contains important aspects of the failure of the post-2003 regime in #Iraq and the need for change even in Kurdistan.


Plasschaert negotiated with the militias and allowed the ambassadors to harm the state by imitating it..


Khamenei's militias, which bomb civilian targets, were saved from the accusation of terrorism when they presented the issue as a political struggle.

On the other hand, researcher Haider Al-Barzanji saw - in a tweet on Twitter - that replacing Plasschaert has become a national and necessary duty, as it is an essential part of what is happening in the tense political reality.

Replacing Blackshart is a national and necessary duty as it is an essential part of what is happening in the tense political reality, and this identification indicates the presence of government support and some parties benefiting from such a cancerous presence.

More than 7 months after the legislative elections in Iraq, government institutions are still experiencing paralysis with the inability to elect a president.

In this country, the President of the Republic is the one who assigns the Prime Minister to form the government.

Pending the impasse, outgoing President Barham Salih - the candidate for a new term - and Prime Minister Mustafa Kazemi continue to conduct business.
