Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi stated that the international community must act to halt the flow of foreign fighters into his country.
"We want an end to the terrorist flow into Iraq and it is the responsibility of the international community," he said Monday in a joint press conference with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon at the Prime Ministry Office in the Iraqi capital Baghdad. "There are some resolutions by the United Nations Security Council aimed to prevent entry of terrorists into a country, but they fail to block terrorists from entering Iraq," he said. According to Anadolu news agency Abadi highlighted the need to halt the terrorist influx from neighbor countries of the two war-ridden countries Syria and Iraq. "Unfortunately, thousands of foreign fighters have come to Syria and Iraq, killed civilians and destroyed the infrastructure," he added. He also argued that there were "war traders" who were dealing with the Islamic State (IS) in neighboring countries and trafficking historical artifacts and oil with the group. "We are fighting a final war against Daesh (IS) in Tikrit, our victory against terrorists in the city is soon," said Abadi, adding that they will move on to liberate Anbar and Mosul from the IS after victory in Tikrit. Abadi described the recent Saudi-led military offensive in Yemen as a "civil strife" that has international repercussions. In our point of view, the problems in Yemen must be solved by Yemenis themselves so as to ward off a foreign intervention that may endanger not only Yemen but also the whole region," he said.
