    The ambassador of the European Union mission in Baghdad, Martin Huth, affirmed that stability, prosperity and full sovereignty in Iraq are a basic condition for peace and stability in the entire region, and while he welcomed the government's steps in holding early elections and studying options for monitoring them.

    Huth also explained that the mission is making every effort to remove Iraq from the list of high risk countries.

    Commenting on the US-Iranian conflict and its impact in Iraq, Ambassador Huth said in a statement to Al-Sabah newspaper, which was followed by the Iraqi News Agency (INA), that "in many cases, foreign powers use Iraq as a proxy battlefield to implement their regional agendas, which increases internal and regional instability." , Stressing that "everyone realizes that a weak and unstable Iraq can only end up as a failed state, with catastrophic repercussions in the region and outside it, and that it is in everyone's interest to contribute to the establishment of a prosperous, stable, strong and sovereign Iraq as a basic condition for the stability of the region. It thrives on the basis of good relations with all its neighbors on an equal footing and the basis of sovereignty, and as neighbors, Iraq and Iran undoubtedly share deep historical ties on several levels.
