Reconstruction should be carried out nationwide: MP

Lawmaker of Basra province Khalaf Abdel-Samad

Lawmaker of Basra province Khalaf Abdel-Samad said Thursday all Iraqi provinces should be included in the reconstruction plans.

"Reconstruction shouldn't be exclusively carried out in the northern and western parts of the country," he noted.

In a statement, he said all Iraqi cities have been impacted by terror."Basra and other areas in central and southern Iraq continue to suffer the woes of scorched earth policy adopted by former governments."

The lawmaker also said the discrimination among provinces when it comes to reconstruction efforts is detrimental to the entire Iraq.
