[Ayna – Baghdad] 
French Foreign Minister Jean-Louis Le Drayan said on Monday that Paris is committed to providing one billion euros ($ 1.15 billion) to Iraq to help rebuild the country after the war it waged with the terrorist.
Lodrian, who met with his Iraqi counterpart, Mohammed al-Hakim in Baghdad, said aid would be aimed at rebuilding the worst-hit areas of Iraq, the Associated Press reported. 
The Iraqi Ministry of Planning estimates the cost of reconstruction at about $ 88 billion, and Iraq managed to raise $ 30 billion at a donor conference in Kuwait last year.
