IRAQI PM HAILS KUWAITI DECISION TO HOST DONOR CONFERENCE

BAGHDAD, Iraq, Iraqi Prime Minister, Haidar Al-Abadi, has praised Kuwait’s willingness, to host a conference of global donors, for the reconstruction of Iraq,k after the defeat of the Daesh group.

In a news conference, Al-Abadi said, on Tuesday, he was grateful to the Amir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, for welcoming Kuwait’s hosting of the event, early in 2018.

Al-Abadi blamed an “incorrect image, in the minds of some, on the security situation in Iraq,” for Baghdad’s decision, not to host the conference itself.

The destruction inflicted by the group is worse in some areas, than it is in others, he said, hoping that, the global assistance would extend to investments from businesses, as well as, state financial grants.
