Sayyid Ammar al-Hakim has stressed that Iraq needs to build the fair modern state that sponsors human rights and the citizen for the sake of the supremacy of the law, equating the rights among all citizens. He explained that this matter cannot be achieved except through a government formed by harmonious political sides that have the clear vision for putting plans and a successful strategy. He explained the rejection of His Eminence of the state of cantons and quotas. This took place during his reception for sheikhs and dignitaries of the Zubaid tribes at his Baghdad office in the morning of Tuesday, October 23, 2012.
His Eminence pointed out that due to the potentials and resources which Iraq has, it needs a plan and a vision to properly administer these resources, calling for relying on the experiences of major global companies in building the service projects, stressing that the plan for building the fair modern state is not a slogan but the product of a plan and of an in-depth study that needs the solidarity of all Iraqi citizens from among the tribes, elite groups and the intelligentsia in order to achieve it.
His Eminence explained that the reality of the diversified Iraq, its interrelated social fabric, civilization and deep history, due to the resources it has, a huge population density, vital geographical location in the region and geopolitical clout, it has always represented a pivotal role in the heart of the world, and that nobody can disturb it. He explained that Iraq has now become advanced in its democratic experiment by ten years over the countries that witness a democratic transformation in their systems.
His Eminence stressed the necessity of making the culture of Iraq, its unity, tolerance and cohesion the object of emulation of area countries, stressing that the regional agendas cannot harm this cemented social fabric, explaining that, “We were, are and will always be calling for unity and peaceful coexistence, and we will keep knocking at the doors of our brethren and brothers in order to change their convictions.”
