It’s a story that seems to be making a few headlines in the international press. The unpublicized trip makes it the first from the Arab world. At the top of the agenda seems to be securing Iraqi oil and reestablishing ties that were marred by growing Sunni-Shia tensions.
I honestly don’t have a take on the trip.
On the one hand, it does, in an odd way, highlight the fact that the Arab world has turned its back on Iraq, be it the people (yes, the people) or their governments. And at the same time, this thought only reminds me that Iraq has been conflict-torn for five years now. Five years.
But in all honesty, I don’t have a real tangible viewpoint on the whole thing.
In all honesty, the aim of this post was to hear yours.
