Shafaq News/ Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi stressed the necessity to end "uncontrolled weapons" in Iraq as a central part of the security and stability in the country.

Concerning Iraq's role in the region, Al-Kadhimi said, "We will contribute to everything that helps stabilize the region and preserve the dignity of people."

On the financial file, the Iraqi Prime Minister expected an increased cash reserve ratio.

The paper, suggested by Al-Kadhimi's government, is composed of five axes to achieve reforms in the financial, economic, essential services, and law fields.
"The cash reserve ratio under our government has reached 68 billion dollars, and it is expected to reach 100 billion dollars." He pointed out.
Al-Kadhimi said that Iraq achieved the most significant economic growth during his government and became the first in the Middle East and fifth in the world.
