Prime Minister Dr. Haider Al-Abadi received in his office on Sunday the governor of Karbala Mr. Aqil Al-Turaihi and the head of the provincial council Mr. Nasayif Jassim Al-Khitabi.
During the meeting they discussed preparations for the Arba'een pilgrimage to Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) and provision of security and services for pilgrims and organising the entry of pilgrims from outside Iraq.
The Prime Minister stressed the importance of exerting more efforts to provide all that would serve the pilgrims and provide them with security through coordination between the various security and military apparatus, referring to the need to draw inspiration from the lessons of sacrifice from the message of Imam Hussein, peace be upon him, and in particular when the country is witnessing a war fierce from the enemies of Islam and humanity by the terrorist gangs of Daesh.
