National reconciliation 'key to Iraq's stability' - Jabouri

It is time to commence community reconciliation project and inculcate tolerance and coexistence in the Iraqi society, Iraqi Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri said on Thursday, adding that these points are key to Iraq's security and stability.

During a meeting with a number of tribal leaders and dignitaries in Baghdad, al-Jabouri stated that tribes play a significant role in maintaining Iraq's unity and social fabric by addressing causes of division.

He pointed out that the Iraqi parliament is keen on supporting tribes and other concerned parties' efforts to achieve unity by passing laws in the interest of all Iraqi citizens without exception.

In an earlier statement, Iraqi Parliament speaker said that security and stability cannot be achieved without Iraqi displaced families' return to their districts and cooperation between the security apparatuses and citizens.
