Iraq receives financial allocations for reconstruction of areas affected by terrorism

A member of the Committee on Economy and Investment parliamentary Najiba Najib, on Friday, the promises of the United Nations to help Iraq from its financial allocations for the reconstruction of areas affected by terrorism, stressing that the size of budgets for the coming years is not enough without international support.
Najib said in a statement that “the federal budgets are not enough to rebuild the areas destroyed by Isis,” noting that “the international community has the responsibility to help Iraq financially in the reconstruction.”
“The reconstruction process must be studied in a realistic way, including demining, rubble and the creation of cities to become livable,” she said.
“Iraq has received a promise from the United Nations special grant of its budget, and European countries as well as the United States of America promised us financial assistance for reconstruction,” noting that “Iraq fought terrorism on behalf of the world and support our duty.”
“Fighting the corruption and spending the money in its rightful place is the first challenge facing Iraq to complete the reconstruction process,” she said, adding that “the areas that have been damaged as a result of receiving and caring for the displaced are supposed to have a share of these funds.”
