The United States is committed to helping Iraq recover from the effects of three years of war against the al-Qaeda organization, a senior official in the US government aid agency said.

“The Agency will continue to provide basic humanitarian services and additional support to minorities, such as psychosocial support for those who have suffered genocide, enslavement and violence,” said Thomas Stahl, USAID adviser.

“The budget provided by President Donald Trump included a 30 per cent reduction, but for Iraq, we are actually considering additional funding, especially for the victims of Da’ash,” Stahl told an interview at the US Embassy in Baghdad.

Trump expressed his position on foreign aid during his election campaign, describing it as a waste of US tax revenues, and suggested reducing the foreign aid budget by one-third.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi announced Saturday the final victory over the organization “Daash” after the Iraqi forces expelled the last remnants of the organization from the country after three years of control by militants on about a third of the territory of Iraq.

The war has had a horrific effect on the areas controlled by the organization, while the United Nations says that “about 3.2 million people are still displaced by the conflict.”

Abadi’s latest estimate suggests that the cost of reconstruction after the war is $ 50 billion, a figure estimated before Iraqi forces regain control of Mosul, causing serious damage to the largest city in northern Iraq.

Stal said the US government has provided humanitarian aid to Iraq worth about 1.7 billion dollars since the terrorist organization seized control of northern Iraq in 2014.

The assistance includes a total grant of $ 265 million to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Stabilization Fund for Iraq in 2016 and 2017.

“Iraq is excluded from Trump’s policy of reducing aid because of the terrible plight of the organization’s victims in particular,” Stall said. “This policy is being implemented in the short term.”
