The Permanent Representative welcomed the launch of the United Nations Program to Prevent the Travel of Terrorists, in his speech at the high-level event launching the program, which contributes to reducing the threat of terrorist intimidation and the development of counter-terrorism measures. Iraq is one of the first countries to apply to the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Bureau to get the United Nations Program to Prevent the Travel of Terrorists.

He also thanked the United Nations, in particular the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Bureau and the Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate, for their unwavering support for Iraq in all areas, as part of the efforts to combat terrorism, and the war against DAESH that enabled Iraq to liberate all the territories and achieve victory on 10 December 2017.
