Iraqi Foreign Minister Mohamed Ali al-Hakim has said the government started a comprehensive anti-corruption plan and will not be reluctant against whoever tries to harm the minorities.
The remarks came during Hakim’s participation in an interactive dialogue organized by the Atlantic Council on the sidelines of the ministerial meeting of the US-led international coalition in Washington.
Hakim said that the dialogue “witnessed a detailed talk about the political situation in Iraq,” adding that the government has a political, economic and social vision.
The government, according to Hakim, “gives priority to the repatriation of the displaced to their homes, providing safe environment and rebuilding of the society.” “It will also work on “facilitating the visa measures to investors to push economy and development forward.”
Hakim tacked the regional situations as well as the challenges that face the Middle East, the statement added referring to situations in Syria, Yemen and Libya. He also pointed out to “necessity of boosting the US-Iraqi ties in light of the common interests.”
