Iraq’s Reconstruction Conference: It’s Touch-and-Go

For most people, Valentine’s Day gift means a bouquet of roses, hear-shaped hand-written card or – if their partner feels generous – a voucher for a romantic getaway. For Iraq’s Prime Minister, Hajdar al-Abadi, this year’s present was much more thrilling – a revived hope for re-election that came with pledges of USD 30 billion from international allies made during the International Conference for Reconstruction of Iraq held in Kuwait on 12-14 February 2018.
