Iraq

The Republic of Iraq is at the front line of the war against the terrorism of Daesh, and works with its partners in the Coalition to defeat Daesh militarily and to stabilise and rebuild liberated areas.

2015 was a year of victories and liberation of large areas, and only small areas remain under Daesh. We are determined to liberate Mosul and expel the last remnants of Daesh from Iraq. We continue to work with our friends from the international community and the Global Coalition Against Daesh to achieve this goal.

Dr. Haider Al-Abadi, Prime Minister
