Iraqi and Arab newspapers commented on the “Peace and Recovery” conference, which was held in Erbil, in Iraqi Kurdistan, and was said to have called for normalizing relations with Israel.

The writers’ opinions ranged from denouncing the conference, which some described as “suspicious”, and those who questioned who was behind its holding at this time, before the parliamentary elections in Iraq. A third party believed that the conference provided a “free gift” to political parties and groups affiliated with Iran, by using it in electoral propaganda.

The conference was held in the presence of about 300 Iraqi personalities in Erbil, the capital of the autonomous Kurdistan region, on the twenty-fourth of September under the title “Peace and Recovery Conference”, sponsored by the Peace Communications Center based in New York. The Iraqi judiciary issued arrest warrants against a number of participants in the conference, but some of them issued statements in which they disavowed their prior knowledge of the conference and its objectives.

The London-based online newspaper, Rai Al-Youm, believes that the conference, which it described as suspicious, “unified all sects and sects in Iraq on the grounds of its condemnation.”
