especially as it took upon itself not to interfere in international and regional affairs and not to pivot with an alliance at the expense of another, and announced it
since the beginning of Its formation is that it is a rational, balanced government far from pivoting, and Iraq can play a role as a bridge for the convergence of regional rivals, and

, in turn, political analyst Ghaleb al-Dami told the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that
"any Iraqi government that will come in the future will face a problem represented in how to establish balanced relations and partnership with all neighboring countries, and
it must hold matters from the middle and convince others that it is a government whose goal is to serve." Iraq and not to fall into one axis against another. Al-Daami added:
"Perhaps Al-Kazemi's government was able to achieve this goal, as Iraq entered the tunnel of international relations, and this was evident on the surface." He pointed out that
"the US-Chinese relations and the expansion of China, the Gulf, Russia, Turkey and Iran, all of these countries do not agree with each other,
so Iraq must be accurate in its relations and take wise and balanced decisions to move away from this dark tunnel."
For his part, Kurdish politician Imad Baglan told the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that
"Iraq occupies a position and a strategic position,
but it needs a strong and intelligent government that can invest this position and play a leading role in international and regional relations between East and West between the United States The United States, between Iran and Saudi Arabia, and between Turkey and Iran, and among the rest of the axes, and

"the current government, when it took a step forward in adopting the principle of effective balance, has made progress at the level of foreign policy from an active role and mediation and attending important seminars and meetings,
all of which can be at least a part of From trying to keep Iraq away from the existing conflict,
but this is not enough, as
it is necessary to go towards guarantor diplomacy in Iraq’s foreign relations, whether with Arab countries and by relying on Arab pivot countries and those related to regional and even Western countries in particular, and establishing relations on the basis of Iraq’s interests first.. And he added:
"As for the other thing, it is that this relationship should be bilateral between Iraq and countries that guarantee its sovereignty and interests.
Therefore, it is not logical for Iraq to rely on the logic of balance with countries that in the end violate its sovereignty and confiscate its internal decisions.
Therefore, the next government, if it believes in the development of Iraq, will be a player." important in the region. And he concluded:
"On the other hand, if there is a regression in what Iraq has achieved, we will be faced with international isolation and sufficiency in the Iraqi interior, and
this makes Iraq a dependent state at the level of foreign policy."

"The next government must complete the ingredients that establish a moderate and systematic governance equation, whose foreign policy is based on moderation and rapprochement, not on exclusion and marginalization, and adopting the policy of axes." He pointed out that
"the current government has succeeded in keeping Iraq's external cover effective, and Iraq sees it as a center of polarization and convergence of views within the Middle East," stressing that
"the next government has major tasks, one of which is to complete this approach, as any wrong policy in adopting pivotal policies will lead to failure." The system and the equation of governance from the beginning.
