Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has warned “the corrupt ones against playing with fire” as he pledged to fight corruption in state institutions, saying “the coming war will be against the corrupt ones.”
In his weekly press conference, Abadi stressed the need for “a comprehensive economic reform in both public and private sectors.”
