Kuwait urges broad participation in reconstruction of Iraq

KUWAIT CITY, Feb. 11 (Xinhua) -- Kuwait on Sunday underlined the importance of hosting the International Conference for the Reconstruction of Iraq (KICRI) and Conference against the Islamic State (IS).

The Kuwaiti Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah called on all friendly countries as well as international organizations to meet in Kuwait and support the efforts in rebuilding Iraq.

At a press conference held on the sidelines of the opening of the KICRI media center, Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said Kuwait host these events to support Iraq and stand by its side.

The minister noted that this comes in line with the principled stance of Kuwait to stand by neighboring Iraq, congratulating at the same time Iraq on its recent victories in liberating its territory from the grip of the IS, which is a danger not only to the region but also to the whole world.

He said that broad participation in these events gives it a great importance and is a message from the international community regarding its commitment to the security and stability of Iraq and its commitment to the reconstruction of its liberated areas.

He hoped that these conferences, efforts and activities will achieve its objectives, adding that since "they have made tremendous efforts to win in time of war, we all must exert greater efforts to win in time of peace."

The three-day KICRI is due to kick off on Monday and the ministerial meeting of the International Coalition against the IS will be held on Feb. 13.
