Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) met a delegation of French journalists in
his blessed office in Holy Najaf and stated that the this stage in Iraq is very
delicate and important as a construction stage especially after having victory
and eliminating ISIS in Iraq, a stage which is more complicated than the direct
confrontation with terrorists.
Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) stated that the economic status, fall of
oil prices, the failure of the Iraqi government and attempts of terrorists to
attack the Iraqi interests are among the outstanding challenges that face Iraq,
indicating that France has faced with terror attacks but the economic and
security stability made France less vulnerable to terrorism than Iraq.
Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) said that the French role is not
different from other world states, questing the reasons why France does not use the lobby on Turkey to withdraw its army from Iraq although the slogans of France are to
defend human rights and peace.
Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) mentioned that the media distort facts, a
responsibility that should be taken to clarify the facts.
