Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim, head of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, affirmed that the accusations against the popular crowd are incorrect, inaccurate and very much exaggerated, explaining that such accusations only aim to cover the last great victories achieved by the security forces, the popular crowd and tribe members over the terrorist gangs of ISIS. His eminence also stressed the importance of associating the achieved security victories with political steps, which can open broad positive perspectives for settling the problems and enhancing cohesion among all Iraqi components.
This came when Sayyid Ammar Al Hakim received Australian Ambassador, Lyndall Sachs, at his office in Baghdad, on Sunday, April 5, 2015.
    During the meeting, the two sides discussed the bilateral relations between Iraq and Australia, reviewed the latest victories achieved by the Iraqi forces against ISIS and highlighted the importance of promoting Australia’s role in training the Iraqi security forces as it is part of the international coalition against terrorism.
