The most important statement of the Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, in the cabinet session that took place today, Thursday:
Today we are in the last days of the current year, and every year and you are good, you and your families and all our Iraqi people in every part of the land of Iraq.
During the year and a half of this government's life, we have experienced great challenges, and we have succeeded in overcoming them, some of which required more time.
All the achievements that have been achieved have been achieved with the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] of all the ministers, as well as with the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] of our honorable Iraqi people, their patience, wisdom and endurance in these circumstances.
The White Paper for Reform is one of these achievements, as it provided a lot of financial returns to the state, and despite some attempts to confuse it, it was approved by many national sectors in industry and agriculture and in maximizing state revenues and cash reserves.
As a result of the white paper, and despite the difficult circumstances, the Corona pandemic and the collapse of oil prices, we were on the verge of the collapse of the political and social system, but we succeeded in providing more than 12 billion dollars from the reserves of the Central Bank of Iraq, and raising the global credit rating of Iraq internationally.
Iraq was close to being classified as a rogue state, but we succeeded in foreign relations, and within a short period of time, Iraq regained much of its regional, international, Arab and Islamic role, and we succeeded in improving our relations, as well as in embracing more than one meeting of brothers, friends and neighbors on the land of Baghdad.. The land of peace.
We succeeded in hydrating the atmosphere regionally, and our international relations succeeded in bringing our views closer and sparing the region from the effects of a war that, God forbid, may be devastating to Iraq and the region.
We have worked hard to protect our people from the Corona epidemic, even though this crisis is an international crisis, and we have provided the best vaccines for the Iraqi people, and we are still continuing to employ the best companies to work in this field.
We worked in the field of energy, and for the first time, we worked to rely on clean energy, and we changed the name of the ministry to the Ministry of Electricity and Alternative Energy, and we signed many contracts with companies interested in alternative energy and clean energy such as solar energy, in order to be an opportunity to comply with the changes of the times.
Yes, there were some challenges that we did not succeed in, because of economic conditions, and because of political conditions, and we will certainly re-address these matters in the future, and we will present a paper to the next government on measures that can benefit from our experience that pertains to some of the difficult challenges we went through and what we diagnosed of failures; To cross to safety.
Our relationship with the Kurdistan region of Iraq during this government was the best since 2003, and we are proud of this relationship. The tensions were few and we had many interpretations. Thank God, through dialogue and building elements of trust, we succeeded in crossing this tense relationship in the best possible way.
I say to all the honorable Iraqi people, we need to secure the future by believing in belonging only to Iraq.
By the end of this year, the combat role of the coalition forces will end, and the combat forces have already withdrawn, and today there is not a single soldier from the coalition forces who holds the status of a fighter, but a group of advisors have arrived to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] our forces and our needs in the war against terrorism and against ISIS.
We record great achievements for our heroic Iraqi army, as well as for our forces in the fight against terrorism, the Popular Mobilization Forces, the Peshmerga and the Federal Police for their success in challenging the remnants of terrorism. We have killed many of the heads and leaders of the terrorist remnants, and the important elements in these groups, and we continue to kill them wherever they are in every part of the land of Iraq.
