The top Iraqi diplomat also called on Arab states to help Baghdad in its fight against Daesh and other terrorist groups.

He made the remarks on the sidelines of an Arab League (AL) summit in the Jordanian city of Sweimeh on Wednesday.

The diplomat added that the world has hailed Iraq’s achievements on the battlefield.

He noted that Baghdad does not want Arabs to send their sons to Iraq to be killed like Iraqi forces.

However, Baghdad wants the Arab states to help it in its campaign against Daesh, whose members have come to Iraq from over 100 states, al-Ja’afari stated.

Addressing the Arab countries, Ja’afari said help us, so Iraq would not hear your voice from the tongue of Daesh that has come to Iraq from your countries.

He further called for financial, political and media support to prevent Daesh comeback after its defeat.

The top Iraqi diplomat stressed that the threat of Daesh will not fade away after the liberation of the Iraqi city of Mosul.
