I called 2016 the year of liberation and victory, our goal was basically is the liberation of the human being, before the earth and save the civilian population of ISIS that she spent on all life and destroyed evidence, the ancient civilization of Mesopotamia.
We have begun and with the help of friends in the international community to the implementation of the programme re-citizens who left them ISIS into their towns liberated and have developed an integrated programme to restore stability and services it, primarily in the services, water and electricity, schools and hospitals, and we call society International to further support the programme of any medicine and displaced persons especially with the approach of resolving the battle of the liberation of ninawa governorate and expectations of increased numbers of displaced persons.

In the area of financial reform, economic, government implemented an ambitious programme to reform which reduce government expenditure by much despite the challenges of the need to continue the war tunnels and our fight against terrorism.
As the government has initiated the restructuring of the many state institutions within steps of the reform of the administrative and put priority service to the citizen and simplification of procedures and raise a lot of women with disabilities and facilitate the mechanisms for dealing with the citizen and the lifting of the obstacles in front of increased investment, The government has sought to enhance partnership with the private sector.
In the area of fight against corruption has been signed a memorandum of understanding with undp united nations to take advantage of international experience to help Iraq in building its capacity to combat the scourge of corruption, and has seen the past weeks practical steps in this area.
We look forward to the day would soon be evacuated, Iraq and the region from ISIS, but our happiness are not only a world free of terrorism, which threatens our peoples and to us, which requires serious cooperation to trap him and drying of the intellectual and financial And the destruction of the networks and recruitment centres throughout the whole world, and that this cooperation will arrive terrorism everywhere will become an increasing numbers of refugees fleeing conflict zones which amounted to dangerous levels and unprecedented.

and we don't have the option of non-cooperation of the victory in the war against terrorism.. and we are preparing any triumph achieved against ISIS in anywhere in the world is the triumph of the whole world.
The risk of repeating the shape or form of terrorist organizations such as Al Qaeda or ISIS will not end only to counter the extremist ideology of these organizations and backward thinking based in its approach to denominational segregation and hostile thinking of all religions and beliefs which feed Her vision of a minor, which I lost on our states opportunities for reconstruction and development opportunities and develop.

We were in Iraq to external factors have an impact in the stability and economic growth and social side, valley of terrorism we faced a crisis of the global oil prices, thereby losing our parallel finance more than 70 percent of its proceeds with escalating costs and burdens of military and Security to liberate Iraqi cities from terrorism..
It was natural that reflected negatively on the plans for development and investment and construction, and with all of these difficult challenges and serious we spent in the implementation of our programme of comprehensive reform and the fight against corruption is arthritis in the state and society And he realized since the beginning of the programme to launch it, it's no less difficult and dangerous on the face of terror, but we are determined to implement it despite all the challenges, and we are optimistic about the victory in the battle of the reforms as we win we freed our lands because we and our people stand in a ditch.
