He explained that “the European Union has fully fulfilled the commitments it made that amounted to more than 400 million euros (445 million dollars) which were mobilized in the past two years to support governance and reforms and encourage the creation of sustainable job opportunities and comprehensive growth in Iraq.”
He added, “I am committed as a high representative and as a representative of the European Union … We are all committed to working to stop the current cycle of violence in Iraq before it spins out of control again.”
The activities of the Iraq Reconstruction Conference, hosted by Kuwait from February 12 to 14, 2018, concluded with a total of $ 30 billion in contributions from the participating countries and entities, including the European Union.
