Iraqs stabilityAn Iranian lawmaker has warned against West-Arab plots against Iraq’s stability and peace, urging the Iraqi people to remain vigilant to thwart conspiracies.

“Arab reactionary countries accompanied by their masters are trying to damage stability and tranquility which are being institutionalized in Iraq,” a member of the Majlis Presiding Board Javad Jahangirzadeh told ICANA on Friday.

He added that Western countries seek to create a new crisis in Iraq following their failed policies in Syria and emphasized that such scenarios would fail to yield any result thanks to the vigilance of the Iraqi people and political figures.

The Iranian legislator noted that Iraq is paying for the failure of a project aimed at toppling Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad.

Sectarian, tribal and political challenges prepare the ground for Western countries’ interference, he added.

Several anti-government demonstrations have been held in Iraq since December 23, 2012, when bodyguards of Finance Minister Rafie al-Issawi were arrested on terrorism-related charges.

The demonstrators allege that the arrests were made on sectarian grounds. They demand an end to anti-terrorism laws, but the government in Baghdad says it is up to the Iraqi parliament to decide on abolishing those laws. The government says there are foreign agendas behind the protests.

Supporters of the Iraqi government have also held demonstrations in several cities over the past few weeks.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki promised on January 2 to consider some of the protesters’ demands but he warned of police intervention if protesters abused their freedom, caused chaos, and compromised national security.
