Ville Varjola, and discussed with him the developments of the Iraqi political scene and the repercussions of regional and international events on 11/8/2022. H.E. stressed the importance of adopting dialogue and prioritizing peoples’ interests to solve outstanding problems.
Concerning political scene developments, His Eminence showed Iraq's need to end the political crisis and form a national service government capable of providing services, providing job opportunities, and improving the living reality, stressing our position not to participate in it while investing all possibilities to bring the views of the political parties closer.
His Eminence also referred to the mechanisms of reform, change, and amendment of the political system or any detail within the system, and reminded that the current system came as a result of great sacrifices made by the Iraqi people in all its sects, which requires everyone to agree on the amendments and changes.
