Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim, head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, reiterated his call to reconsider the whole of the security strategy, stressing that a right strategy should address the security, development, political and social problems. His eminence called to resort to the forces that possess a true weight based on the principle “locals know best”, maintaining that the current situation highlights the need to reconsider the security strategy as we had demanded. Sayyid Al Hakim also called to prosecute indolent officers and insisted on not lenient with anyone who has let the country down or disowned his duties amidst these difficult circumstances. His eminence warned against political void and stressed the need to form a government quickly within the constitutional limits, underlining the importance of maintaining the efforts aiming to agree on a national alliance candidate within the mechanisms set by the alliance and based on the by-laws, the ministerial program, the distribution of roles and the mechanisms of supervision of officials. His eminence finally called to turn the national alliance into an institution capable of helping and overseeing officials.
This came when his eminence was receiving the head of the national alliance Dr. Ibrahim Al Jaafari, in his office in Baghdad on Tuesday, Jun 10, 2014.
For his part, Al Jaafari described the events of Mosul as regrettable and sad, indicating that these events are a threat to the people and to the sovereignty and wealth of Iraq. He called to review the security performance and examine the weaknesses and strengths of security forces, reminding the United States of the Strategic Framework Agreement signed with Iraq and calling on the neighboring countries to control their borders with Iraq.
