BAGHDAD/ Aswat al-Iraq: Premier Nouri al-Maliki criticized today, Friday, Anbar demonstrations that cut off the international highway connecting Iraq with Syria and Jordan, pointing that closing roads and rattling do not pay, calling for the use of civilizational methods in expression.
During his participation in the National Reconciliation Festival in Baghdad, he called that the demands should be "realistic and nationalistic", stressing that "politicization wrongly affected the work of the ministries and rendering services to the citizens".
Maliki stressed that reconciliation is "the ship that moved Iraq to safety" and its connotations depict that "Iraq is one and the Iraqi people is one".
Commenting on Anbar demonstrations, he added that the living nations use civilizational methods, "not cutting roads and rattling with war and denominationalism and division of the country, which shall be of no use".
"Everything in this country is politicized, even the drop of water, because everyone puts the responsibility on others' shoulders, particularly the Prime Minister", he added.
Maliki stressed that he is ready to bear all responsibilities for everything, "but shouldering responsibility on one person is backwardness, because the ministries are divided, as well as the components of the Iraqi society, so the shortcoming should be shouldered by all because all participated in the political process".
He confirmed that "achieving political stability and harmony will result in security stability".
