MP Mohammed al-Chihoud, it seems that he pointed out that this year will be a year of economic openness and shortened it with a short congratulation. "The Seven Dwarfs went by the grace of God (2011-2017) and seven sparks began to appear."

Strategic expert Hisham al-Hashemi said: "Those who lived in Baghdad, Basra, Nasiriyah, Mosul, Arbil or Sulaymaniyah last night, stand on the sharp irony of this transition from the history of the Iraqi state, that the majority of the people have the minimum of intellectual immunity against extremism Religious, immune to hard-line behavior comes from home education, not just from government adoption or media. "

Vice President Iyad Allawi expressed his confidence in the ability of Iraqis to maintain victory and achieve progress and prosperity, pointing out that the election in 2018 should be a "real opportunity" for change and reform and prepare all the circumstances and the reasons for success.

"We hope that the new year will be a year of security, good, comfort and well-being to meet their aspirations and achieve their aspirations," Allawi said in a statement on the occasion of the new year 2018.

Allawi stressed that the next year should be "decisive for the file of the displaced by speeding them back to their homes and the reconstruction of their areas," adding that "this will be a cornerstone for achieving security and stability in the liberated areas."

Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) President Nechervan Barzani expressed his hope that security and stability in the region will prevail in the new year, stressing that they can overcome the obstacles that stand in their way to unite.

Barzani wrote on his account in the social networking site "Twitter" a gala on the occasion of the new year of the new Gregorian, congratulating the people of Kurdistan, expressing his belief that resistance and the unity of the people will be able to pass all the obstacles in the way.

The decision of the Committee on Security and Defense in the Iraqi Parliament, Iskandar and Tut, announced the intention of the Committee to direct an official question from Parliament to the government on the fate of US forces in the country, and discuss the feasibility of survival, indicating in a statement to local television that a meeting will be held with Prime Minister, , On this matter.

For his part, said Deputy Chairman of the Security Committee in Parliament, Nayef al-Shammari, that "Iraq does not need the presence of US ground forces or building bases," adding that "US forces did not have a physical presence during the battles that took place during the previous period against the organization" "But its role was limited to air support and logistical support." The Americans did not offer any casualties during the fighting because they were not originally in combat lines as ground forces. "

Al-Shammari called for "the partial American military presence in Iraq to remain until the Iraqi air force is fully completed and developed in line with current challenges."

Iraq faces three main dilemmas in 2018, despite the recent announcement by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abbadi that the war against the state organization has ended, calling for the defeat of the extremist organization.

These are the dilemmas facing the pockets of the organization, the containment of the popular crowd, Namely, corruption.

About a year after the start of military operations in Mosul, northern Iraq, the Iraqi prime minister announced on December 9, 2017 the control of Iraqi forces "completely" on the Syrian-Iraqi border, stressing "the end of the war" against the organization officially advocated.

But the biggest challenge remains to face the pockets of the organization, where elements are active from time to time and carry out suicide operations, which could compound the challenges faced by Iraqi forces.

On the other hand, the issue of the popular crowd is coming to the fore next year, especially as Abadi seeks to "limit the weapons of the state."

The third dilemma is corruption or "dinosaur," as some MPs call it. Iraq is ranked tenth among the most corrupt countries in the world, while those involved in corruption issues end up fleeing abroad or out of bars after receiving amnesty.

Because corruption is a major crisis for Iraq, Abbadi acknowledged that the battle against corruption would be harsh and that the proceedings were on track. There are lists under investigation. "We will surprise the corrupt."

"There are corrupt people who have been convicted by judicial decisions and sentenced to punishment according to the law, but they are included in the general amnesty law enacted by the House of Representatives," judicial spokesman Judge Abdul Sattar Birqdar said.
Among those who managed to flee the country, recently, the governor of Basra Majid Nasraoui.

The crisis in Iraqi Kurdistan is the fourth dilemma, the crisis that was exacerbated between Baghdad and the Kurds after the announcement of the outcome of the referendum on the independence of Kurdistan from Iraq at the end of last September, while the international community refused to recognize the referendum.

In the meantime, Iraqi forces announced their control of important oil and security facilities in Kirkuk, a few days after launching a military operation against the Kurds under the slogan "to keep the city safe."

The internal rivalry between the two sides has negatively affected the steps of reconstruction and erasing the effects of the "Dahesh" organization from the cities.

Perhaps what helped to contain the crisis slightly step aside Massoud Barzani from the presidency of the region, despite the intensification of fighting between Baghdad and Kurdistan in October, given the importance of economic territory of Iraq. 8%AA-%D9%88%D8%A8%D9%85%D8%A7%D9%84-%D8%B9%D8%B1%D9%8A%D8%B6%D8%A9-%D8%A8%D8%B9%D8%AF-%D8%A7%D9%86%D9%82%D8%B6%D8%A7-%D8%B3%D8%A8%D8%B9-%D8%B9%D8%AC%D8%A7%D9%81/%D8%B3%D9%8A%D8%A7%D8%B3%D9%8A%D8%A9
