The Sayyed received the Iraqi education minister
|The occupation should swiftly withdraw from Iraq|
His Eminence, the Religious Authority Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah, received the Iraqi Minister of Education Khoddeir Al-Khaza'i, who headed a delegation of the ministry. The Iraqi situation and the recent security and political developments were discussed.
During the meeting, His Eminence underscored that everyone in Iraq should be on guard and alert vis-à-vis the US schemes, because if it ever feels stable, it will work towards extending the term of this occupation. He also expressed fears that the occupation might attempt to provoke tension in Iraq in order to secure its own stability, thus exposing Iraq to a permanent occupation, irrespective of the withdrawal agreement [the security agreement signed recently between the US government and the Iraqi government] because to the occupation, this agreement is not worth the ink with which it was written, especially if the circumstances changed in favor of the occupier.
His Eminence stressed that the occupation should be swiftly expelled of Iraq just as it swiftly occupied it.
His Eminence also received Iraq Minister of Tourism, Dr. Qahtan Al-Jabbouri, and tackled the Iraqi situation. The Sayyed affirmed that Iraq's internal unity is a security valve for the Iraqis to face the occupation and the takfiri groups who are serving the occupier whether intentionally or unintentionally.
