Iraq

I. Why it Matters

Both the threat of ISIS and the Kurdish push for independence saw, at least nominally, the U.S. and Iran pursue similar policy objectives in Iraq and implicitly cooperate. But longstanding U.S. concerns over Iranian influence in Iraq, shared by Washington’s regional allies, have grown with ISIS’s demise and a move by Iran-backed militias deep into territories claimed by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG). Iraq could therefore see an escalation in the Iran-U.S. rivalry.
