(MENAFN) Preserving the triumph over terrorist outfits, which was accomplished before three years, entails the continuance of the war on terror, Iraqi President Barham Salih announced on Thursday.
The Presidency’s media office said in a statement that Salih made his remarks on the ceremony of announcing victory over the activists of the terrorist Islamic State (IS) group in December 2017.
Salih was cited as saying “The victories must be preserved and terrorist groups must be prevented from destabilizing some regions and cities by continuing the war on terror.”
According to the statement, “The war against terror also entails “taking brave and decisive steps in combating corruption, strengthening state authority, protecting the security and stability of citizens, in addition to achieving reform and returning the displaced to their homes.”
