BAGHDAD – Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Sunday stressed the importance of maintaining the neutrality of the armed forces and keeping them away from political differences and conflicts, pointing out that work is under way to limit weapons to the state.
“We faced an existential challenge, but we came out stronger and more united,” Abadi said during a meeting with security and military leaders at the headquarters of joint operations and exchanging congratulations on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr.
“Any weapon outside this framework is a weapon of war and chaos,” Abbadi said.
“The second battle is with corruption, and the security establishment must be removed from any aspect of corruption and remain fair and above suspicions,” Abbadi said, adding that “the investigation is being carried out in any suspicion.”
He stressed “the importance of the intelligence effort and its very important role during the next phase and the pursuit of terrorist cells.” Finished 2
