The Sasakawa Peace Foundation is honored to host a lecture by Mr. Nizar Al-Khairalla, Senior Foreign Ministry Undersecretary of the Republic of Iraq, with the theme “Iraq Today: Opportunities and Challenges.”
It is widely acknowledged that the military campaign against Islamic State (“IS”) has almost ended in Iraq. In May 2018, parliamentary elections were held, and, ever since, the newly formed Iraqi government has been working on the stabilization and reconstruction of society. Mr. Al-Khairalla will deliver a lecture on Iraq’s diplomatic relations with neighboring countries, current counter-terrorism measures as well as some of the challenges and strategies on reconstructing society.
This year marks the 80th anniversary of Iraq-Japan diplomatic relations. We cordially invite you to attend this lecture, as it is a great opportunity to hear firsthand from one of Iraq’s foremost dignitaries and better understand the current situation in the country.
