Iraq had banded from this leauge 13 years ago after Saddam invated Kuwait and that Iraq didn't participate in this leauge for 13 years. Iraq didn't play in the first three leagues in the 4th league Iraq played and took the first place, Iraq made it three times and they just play in 5 leagues, they needed a political decition to get Iraq back to the league (imagen that) because Iraq was banded from the league by a decition made by the gulf countries council, and now they made another one which says that Iraq can get back to the league.
