Press Shia Agency – Referring to the meeting between Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali al-Sistani and the Special ‎Representative and Head of the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq, Hujjat al-Islam al-Qubanchi ‎said, “Ayatollah al-Sistani presented a roadmap for improving the situation of Iraq for the ‎government, people and members of parliament.”‎

Press Shia Agency – During his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in ‎the Iraqi holy city of Najaf’s al-Fatimiyah al-Kubra Husayniyah, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid ‎Sadruddin al-Qubanchi said, “In a meeting with Ján Kubiš, the Special Representative and ‎Head of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq, Grand Ayatollah al-Sistani presented a ‎roadmap for improving the situation of Iraq for the government, people and members of ‎parliament‏.‏‎” ‎


The Iraqi Shi’ah scholar ‎added, “Ayatollah al-Sistani has asked the political parties to work ‎with the government to improve the situation, protect the sovereignty of the country and ‎prevent any interference in the internal affairs of Iraq‏.‏‎”‎


He said, “Fighting corruption, using opportunities to rebuilt the areas destroyed during the ‎era of terrorist attacks by Daesh against Iraq, bringing refugees back and improving services ‎are among the demands of this source of emulation.”‎


Hujjat al-Islam al-Qubanchi ‎condemned the actions by the Congress of the United States in ‎sanctioning some Iraqi organizations under the pretext of cooperating with the Islamic ‎Republic of Iran and said, “Iran is a supporter of Iraq and has provided a lot of help in ‎protecting the security of the country and expelling the Daesh terrorist movement from the ‎country‏.‏‎”‎


His Eminence described such actions by the United States as a clear intervention in Iraq’s ‎affairs, and stated, “These oppressive allegations are false and reflect the stupidity and ‎decline of the United States‏.‏‎”‎


He continued, “While the United States is taking such actions, it has been silent in regard to ‎the arrival of more than 5,000 terrorists from Saudi Arabia to Iraq‏.‏‎ These sorts of actions of ‎the United States demonstrates its savagery, not civilization‏.‏‎” ‎


Hujjat al-Islam al-Qubanchi said, “The Popular Mobilization Forces and our various political ‎parties and institutions continue to work with the Islamic Republic of Iran and any country ‎that cooperated with us during the Iraq’s war against terrorism.”‎


He referred the trips by the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Muhammad ibn Salman, to some ‎of the countries of the Middle East and said, “These trips were fruitless and the Tunisian ‎people condemned ibn Salman’s trip to their country‏.‏‎”‎


Hujjat al-Islam al-Qubanchi stressed that Interpol must arrest this killer who has committed ‎various brutal crimes‏.‏
