Video: Donors pledge more than $300m to Iraq

Iraq is hoping for more concrete pledges from international donors on the second day of a conference on rebuilding cities and infrastructure shattered by the conflict with ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIS).

On Monday, non-governmental organisations pledged more than $300 million to the reconstruction effort, far short of the $100 billion the government says it needs.

    Sirs,

    The PM should have insisted that first; Kuwait should wipe out the O/S balance $4Billion claim against Saddam occupying Kuwait in 1990. Its a well known fact for all that the compensation amount has been well over exaggerated and inflated. This could have been Kuwait’s good will gesture if they really mean to help building Iraq! Bloody Politics!!

    Iraqis should fight corruptions and remove thieves from power – that’s what we all need to build Iraq again

    Thank you
