To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent discussions his Department has had with the Iraqi government on the success of an Iraqi application for support from the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund.
31 October 2016
We are in regular discussions with the Government of Iraq on how UK support is helping to build stability in Iraq, support diplomatic and military efforts to defeat Daesh, and contribute to stabilising liberated areas. I last discussed these issues with Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari at the UK-Iraq bilateral Joint Committee, held in London on 12 October.
The Conflict, Stability and Security Fund is one of a number of means of support that the UK deploys in support of the Government of Iraq, complementing diplomatic and communications efforts. The Fund is currently supporting Government of Iraq efforts to deliver reform and reconciliation, stabilisation, and counter-Daesh strategic communications.
