Roudao – Erbil
Three years ago, many in this city and other cities in the world and the region and with them at home said that Iraq is over. Yes, hundreds of villages, neighborhoods and dozens of cities have fallen. Millions of people have fled and buildings and infrastructure have been destroyed, but we have said that Iraq has not and will not end. Five thousand years will not be ended by a terrorist gang.
It was the clear vision of the General Commander of the General Commander, Dr. Abadi, that transformed the defeat into victory. It was the popular outburst with our military forces and the popular mobilization volunteers that made the victory.
Yes, we have the right to celebrate victory, but we need to remember the martyrs, the wounded and their families. They are the ones who made victory. Everyone must remember that our armed forces and the commander-in-chief, who last declared victory,
This victory is not only a distinct military victory (this is what the leaders of the coalition have said), but it is an Iraqi political victory. President Abadi succeeded in gathering the national effort and recruiting volunteers and mobilizing him towards the battle Arabs, Kurds and Turkmen, Muslims, Christians and minorities. Iraq succeeded in gathering regional and international efforts in support of Iraq .
State of the myth of the call ended but the task is not finished, but just started, we have a great task is to complete the victory and protect it, and this requires the strengthening and support of our security and military institutions. It requires working together to combat the sectarian discourse and hate speech and to vigorously confront its roots and dry its sources and activate UN resolutions to pursue financiers and supporters of terrorism so that we do not allow a new wimp to emerge, and we all know that some have helped it or turned a blind eye to it and now it burns.
As a democratic country, we enjoy great media freedom after 2003 and are happy with it. But as victims of terrorism we address the world to redefine the controls that allow the media to promote terrorism, murder, hatred and destruction of life and civilization. We have a clear vision for a post-Saddam Iraq and a strong commitment and plans for the short, medium and long term.
In the short term, we will continue to liberate all Iraqi territories: Tal Afar, Hawija and West Anbar, and we will complete the stabilization programs and we will return the displaced to their homes safely in cooperation with the international effort, especially the United Nations.The people of Tal Afar, Sinjar and Hawija will return. The Shabaks, Yezidis, Turkmen and all minorities will return to their cities and villages.
In the medium and long term, we will work with international organizations, experts and specialists to reconstruct and build all of Iraq and to move the investment file and plans of economic and financial reform and fight corruption.
Community reconciliation is a behavior we work on and believe that it is the foundation that will strengthen and consolidate state institutions.
Despite the preoccupation with the war, we continue to work with local and international experience for more than two years to prepare a comprehensive vision for the next decade will be presented this fall is the vision of Iraq 2030, Iraq is sick and will not die.
We thank you again and we look forward to hosting all those who participated with Iraq in its battle to celebrate Baghdad soon with the victory of rebuilding all its cities and villages.
