“Not only is Saudi Arabia interfering in the Iraqi picture but as a destabilizing force and a power

that is linked to ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) and to al-Qaeda, we have definite proof of such interference. Al-Qaeda is… actually striving to bring down the political regime and democracy in Iraq,” Sa’ad al-Muttalibi said in an exclusive interview with Press TV on Saturday.
He said Saudi Arabia will ultimately suffer from its practices in Iraq and Syria.
“Unfortunately, it takes a wise man to understand that a stable country, a stable neighbor contributes to the stability of its own country. But we have to remember that Saudi Arabia does not have a democratic system so they don’t really understand or care about what the people say. They have a king and they have a monarchy, a non-democratic system where the royal family decides whatever they want and a jurisprudence of clerics and religious institutions backs the monarchy. They don’t really have the same democratic system where they have to answer to their own people,” Muttalibi pointed out.
The Iraqi legislator stated, “It’s very natural for a regime such as Saudi Arabia to fear any success story, in particular from an important regional country like Iraq, with its natural resources and its ability to be a bridge between the West and the East, and a close ally to the Arab world at the same time [and] holding an excellent relationship with Iran and Turkey at the same time.”
In an interview with state-funded BBC Arabic news network on Friday, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki said Saudi Arabia is “clearly” meddling in the internal affairs of Iraq and Syria.
Maliki said Riyadh has prohibited Saudi nationals from entering Iraq, but is still facilitating the entry of foreign terrorists into the country.
“[It is] clearly interference in Iraqi affairs. Whilst it is true that Saudi Arabia prohibited Saudi nationals from entering Iraq, it is possible to send non-Saudis. There are many Nigerian and Chadian mercenaries who are paid money to enter Iraq,” the Iraqi premier stated.
Many believe the security situation in Iraq will aggravate in the run-up to the April 30 general elections, the first of such polls in the country since the US withdrawal in late 2011.
