He pointed out that “there are those who doubt the government and do not want these successes to be recorded in its name. Some say that the document is old while it was issued in October, and with all this some question the reforms of this government and all the correct measures it has taken.”

And Al-Kazemi stated, “This government is two and a half years old, worked for twenty-eight months and did not receive only six months of the budget, with all this we succeeded in crossing an important stage,” noting that “the central bank’s reserves were downward at the moment we received the government, it was 49 billion dollars, Today we have a reserve of 85 billion dollars, and we had gold reserves close to 96 tons, today it is about 134 tons. This is due to the reform paper that we applied.”

He continued, “From the first moment, we had a vision to reform the Ministry of Finance, which was adopted by the former minister, and we presented a set of reform projects, and it was met with strong objections by parliamentarians and political blocs to prevent reform in the Ministry of Finance and to maintain traditional mechanisms that do not fit the times,” pointing out that “The former minister presented a comprehensive accounting project that requires automation and modern methods, but everyone fought it, and yet we worked on it, and it takes time.”

And he indicated that “comprehensive accountability helps us to stop waste, reduce corruption and stop manipulation in many cases, as happened with the issue of secretariats in the Tax Authority, which we announced to reveal, and some tried to protect the corrupt and thieves and transfer the accusation to the government.”

Al-Kazemi also said, “This issue does not concern the government, but rather a department of the Ministry of Finance, with all this, I was the first to alert the former minister about this phenomenon in 2021, and directed him to conduct an investigation, and in light of the investigation, he issued an order to prevent the disbursement of any tax trusts without collection.” Minister’s approval.

Al-Kazemi indicated, “Some are trying to obstruct any success,” explaining that “since the first day we announced the anti-corruption project, we fought corruption and were subjected to great pressure, threats and extortion, and we saw that the government did not obtain parliamentary sponsorship for known reasons, but rather continued opposition to it, because of Some people’s interests have been harmed. From the first day, we announced the fight against corruption, and we will end the last day of the government’s life by fighting corruption.”

And he indicated that “what was announced about the tax issue is one of the great challenges,” stressing that “history will do justice to this government, and the investigations that the judiciary is quietly carrying out will show that.”

He noted that “the judiciary began investigations for months and quietly, but some knew that accountability would reach him, so he tried to make a fuss, and take advantage of some circumstances to create chaos and cover up the real corrupt and the causes of this problem.”

And he indicated, “When the ministry did not succeed more than 17 years ago, in finding an electronic automation system that integrates with the times and the correct calculation mechanisms, and if these systems existed, we would not have fallen into these problems, and the issue of tax trusts is long-lived and has nothing to do with this government and it is old, But with all this, we have taken a decision on the issue of comprehensive accountability and its implementation, but it needs time because it needs restructuring and arranging some procedures in the ministry.”

He continued, “You remember when there was an uproar about the automation of customs, it also caused a problem, and there were many objections from some, but we signed agreements with the United Nations to re-automate some joints in the Ministry of Finance and it takes many years, and it was supposed to start since 2003, and it was adopted by all countries in the region.

He pointed out that “the customs systems that we proposed are compatible and integrated with 90 countries in the world, including all the neighboring countries of Iraq, but with great regret there are those who are trying to blackmail the government and come up with populist and extortion speeches aimed at bringing down and preventing any achievement of this government.”

He pointed out that “there are many parties that have tried to pressure, directly or indirectly, that the ministry not take its measures, despite all this, the government has adhered to a policy of silence in order to avoid any attempt to frustrate the people. On the ground, the state knows everything, and if the state wants to open the files, it will cause earthquakes, and the Iraqi situation cannot withstand earthquakes, but needs construction and patience for the future of Iraqis.

He pointed out that “there are those who took advantage of the policy of silence that we adopted from the first moment, and Iraq has many problems and challenges, and we resorted early to the policy of patience and silence, and we were not willing to exaggerate the problems or engage in political rivalries in an environment in which poverty became a part, the lack of services and the shortcomings in education”.

He also said, “We did not want to engage in quarrels and thus create despair among the people, so we preferred silence and let our work stand out, and we did not want to frustrate the people’s resolve. For the people’s eyes, I endured many accusations and slanders and even assassination attempts, I was subjected to three assassination attempts and did not develop The subject, although the last attempt witnessed international pressure to internationalize it, and it refused to protect Iraq and the Iraqis. 

He pointed out that “there are those who try to question any step taken by the government in favor of the Iraqis, with all this, we must protect everyone who raised the banner of fighting corruption, and people know that this campaign of confusion comes to try to distort the investigation or influence it with false accusations, and people know who They are the corrupt, and they know there are big whales behind this operation.”

He stressed that “there is no government that fails or succeeds because it has wealth,” considering that “a successful country is the one that invests in people’s minds, and we see that many countries of the world have wealth, but they are failed countries. Many countries of the world do not have wealth, but they are successful countries.” Today we have Singapore as a model, and Taiwan, small countries, but they have the fourth or fifth reserves in the world, and sometimes they are forced to import stones, and they have managed to build countries that have turned into icons.”

He explained that “Iraq possesses history, civilization, wealth, the younger generation, geography and culture. We have all the ingredients for success, and what we need is fatherhood and honesty in dealing with service files.”

Al-Kazemi thanked “the ministers who are committed to preserving public money and who adhere to the directives, as well as their attempt to provide services in the most difficult circumstances,” wondering, “There has not been a government in Iraq that remains for two years without a budget, how did we continue to work then? And how did we succeed with deprivation of money?”

“We have prevented the economy from collapsing, and we have built a kind of economic growth in a world that is witnessing a major decline and great challenges for all countries of the world,” he added.

He pointed out, “Iraq ranked second in economic growth, and today we distributed the government’s achievements to you. Last year, we distributed the first part, and today we end this year of the government’s life with the presentation of the report on government performance, and the percentage of achievement in it is a high percentage.”

He pointed out that “some people accuse us that we did not market the achievements, I say yes: we have a defect in marketing because we did not rely on corrupt money to create electronic armies, and I do not believe in them, and I believe that in politics there should be a minimum of cavalry qualities and moral values, Because we work for the people, not for partisan, sectarian or ethnic agendas.”
