Storyline


The victory of the Mosul war brought peace to Iraq, as well as a positive impact to world peace, Iraqi ambassador to Jordan said on Sunday in Amman.

Safia Al Souhail, Iraqi ambassador to Jordan, said fighting against terrorism is a common goal of the world during a press briefing which was held to introduce the situation of Iraq and Iraq-Jordan borders.

"It is a victory of all human beings. It is a victory over evil and terrorism. Having this victory means not only that Iraq welcomes peace, but also that the world will welcome peace from this time on. Just imagine, around 25,000 terrorists were killed in the Mosul war. If they had fled out of Iraq, [there would be devastating consequences]," said Souhail.

Souhail said the urgent problem to be solved after the victory is how to restore the national order and start post-war reconstruction. Reconstructing Iraq remains an arduous task, which will need the support from the international world, Souhail added.

"Iraq is awaking and rising unremittingly. It needs the support from the international world to achieve its national reconstruction. We thank [the international community] which has already provided support to us. However, we need more," said Souhail.

After the Mosul war, Iraq will face the problem of how to make Iraqi refugees go back home as soon as possible. As one of the countries that is bearing the most refugees from Iraq, Jordan will work together with Iraq to solve the problem.

"We work together with Jordan to help more Iraqi refugees in both Jordan and Iraq go back to their homeland. There are around two million refugees within Iraq, and there are tens of thousands of refugees outside," said Souhail.

As a neighboring country of Iraq, Jordan has a close relation with Iraq in various fields including politics and economy. Iraq is the most important trading partner for Jordan. However, as terrorist groups have surged in recent years, the borders between Iraq and Jordan have been closed several times, severely affecting the trade between the two countries.

In 2003 when the Iraq war broke out, large numbers of businessmen flocked to Jordan and cooperated with local enterprises. Now, these businessmen have become one of the backbones of the country's economy and commerce. Jawad Anani, former Deputy Prime Minister of Jordan, thinks that Iraq can hardly rebuild without the Iraqi businessmen and enterprises.

"We need to reopen the borders between the two countries. And of course, the victory in Mosul will impact this in a positive way. Jordan can not only be important for Iraq as a trading partner but also important for Mosul as a place to launch the reconstruction of Iraq, especially the western part of Iraq," said Anani.
