Iraq: Will the Baghdad Conference Fulfil Iraq's Aspirations?

Iraqi blogger Mohammed is wondering whether tomorrow's Baghdad Conference will be a “positive contribution to stability in Iraq and to building better relationships with the neighbors and the international community?”
“The public opinion here isn't showing a lot of interest in the event and the subject rarely finds its way to common conversations, actually most people do not know who's going to be here for the conference, that, if they are at all aware it's going to be held tomorrow and in Baghdad—people are tired of watching neighboring countries interfering in Iraq almost always against Iraq's interests,” he explains.
