RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in the Iraqi city of Najaf’s Fatimah al-Kubra Husayniyah, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Sadruddin al-Qubanchi, while welcoming the upcoming trips of the Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, during which he will be visiting the Islamic Republic of Iran, emphasized the necessity for American troops to withdraw from Iraq.
His Eminence said, “The prime minister’s trip to Saudi Arabia, Iran and the United States is a positive step that must emphasize the need not to interfere in Iraqi affairs and the withdrawal of American troops.”
He stressed that Iraq isn’t looking for hostility with any country but rather, it wants to coexist peacefully with all neighbouring countries and the world.
Hujjat al-Islam al-Qubanchi noted, “Mustafa al-Kadhimi’s visit to several Iraqi cities, including Karbala and then Basrah, was a positive step in that direction, and Iraqi citizens feel the impact of these trips.”
His Eminence added that the project related to border crossings and preventing the entry and exit of goods without supervision is also a positive step and this project must be implemented successfully and all political groups must act in the interests of the government.
Regarding the success of the Iraqi security forces in killing one of the leaders of the Daesh terrorist group known as the Daesh governor of Baghdad [Ahmad Isa (Abu Talhah)], he said, “I thank the security forces for carrying out this courageous operation.”
Hujjat al-Islam al-Qubanchi added, “There is no return for Daesh, and this terrorist group is experiencing defeat in Iraq and it is not possible for Iraq to become a takfiri state. There is peaceful coexistence among all Iraqi groups.”
