Acknowledgements and a lesson

Proudly , finished seven years as ambassador in Iraq, my service, in the two States are two of the most important countries in the world for Iraq , and I mean by the Japan and the United States respectively. The issue of Iraq , during this period of my service , made headlines during a period in which life has changed and the global system as a whole in the world's most influential .

 

It has affected my life in many rich experiences on a professional and personal level, seen in the different cultures of the East and the West, through the co-existence and the valley is deep between Tnayat advanced and different communities from each other just like the Japanese and American society and tasted them is the sweetest days. The three years I spent in Japan and the occurrence of three simultaneous disasters, is the great Thuko and tsunami and nuclear fusion at the Fukushima earthquake, and coexisted moment by moment with how the Japanese use all its nobility and pride, and his main concern and devotion to their country with such disasters, while any disaster which alone could have shaking the entire nation.

 

I also had the opportunity to visit many of the US states and the provinces of Japan , and looked closely at the secret progress of those countries and the sustainability of its superiority , and I was dazzled by the extent to which the respect and admiration of those advanced to the history of Iraq and its people, peoples , especially after they witnessed closely the extent of our efforts to protect our democracy nascent enemies and predators and terrorists and ignorant , I had the honor of representing my country during this stage, which is one of the most difficult stages of its modern history , during the height of his need for help from abroad , which repels faces every day the most powerful and the most intense waves of terrorism on behalf of the world.

 

I am convinced that the ethnic diversity increased positive point that the best handle, and that the Japanese people are closer than can establishes the concept of integration of peoples , where almost not to see the existence and effect of the word " I" in the social and political their dictionary , and the evolution of the march and permanent quest for perfection lock can be acquired through the review and time. As it touched the reality that the American people cream -loving people of good and ready to tender earning the confidence and dealt with him from the premises candor and clarity and common benefits, and realized that the secret of the cohesion of these communities stems from the rule of law and respect for the system before everything.

 

I made a point during my service to my country to provide the best possible face on the limits of available resources and humble , but I did not have to be able to these simple without the unlimited support and the support I received from and my partner and my mother's compassionate and my children and my thing the family, and stand with me in the most difficult circumstances and the darkest times in my life all the steps the march and the march of my professional, social and political .

 

I and my family know that our own lives may be prone to abuse as it is the reputation of the country and the state that we represent , and that by malevolent and weak people and ignorant people , but at the same time we recognize that serving the nation comes first and foremost, and that's what set by the monument 's eyes to make decisions was I very difficult which enables us to move forward and refute the lies and rumors affecting my country, Iraq , which by the examples that touch me personally.

 

I have learned through my duty as an ambassador that all the embassy staff , and attitudes and different tasks , is the real foundation for the ambassador , nor can progress and provide the simplest things and tasks without it Attribution, Praise all cranks and diplomatic communities, which otherwise would have been able to accomplish the most basic of success.

 

Perhaps some believe that what is proud is tinsel position and what meets the eye from the phenomenon as visits and delegations of state officials and high official talks and so on , but the real is that a source of pride and real pride for me is to meet the needs of any Iraqi from the community or from the scholarship students or visitors during their visits official or non- official United States of America and Japan.

 

Through direct my dealings with the rulers , in Iraq and abroad , he realized that sit on the seat of government does not mean always that the ruling has the potential of governance, and that the position of trials and the plight of more than an upgrade and a blessing, especially in these difficult and complex period of the last function is generally not worth stick it out , but as far as it comes to community service or change society for the better anyway .

 

I found through my experience this modest and Maistei different peoples and communities to the Iraqi people , despite the country's wealth in human and natural resources , miserable , he is a victim of the successive dictatorships and political violence and selfishness . Iraq needs a lot of Alrjalat to Ersoa him to safety, the men have the visions and live altruism for Iraq away from the premises narrow factional , sectarian and nationalist , sectarian and partisan , and I realized that Iraq is now the state does not have a lot of the elements of power in many areas,

 

 

I found through my experience this modest and Maistei different peoples and communities to the Iraqi people , despite the country's wealth in human and natural resources , miserable , he is a victim of the successive dictatorships and political violence and selfishness . Iraq needs a lot of Alrjalat Ersoa for him to safety, the men have the visions and live altruism for Iraq away from the premises narrow factional , sectarian and nationalist , sectarian and partisan ,and I realized that Iraq is now the state does not have a lot of the elements of power in many areas, and requires tremendous efforts of cadres locked and sincere possess professional competence , sincerity and seek and focus to build a homeland for their children and grandchildren before everything with full knowledge of the requirements reconstruction of the various aspects of physical , mental, psychological , cultural and social and economic and political .

 

As it turns me closely that the Iraqi administrative system almost as a body without a soul , and that the government machine is idle and needs urgent quickly to doses of energy and visions sound , knowing that the treatments required to meet the scale of the challenge that we face in Iraq is not understood by only a few , and that the current path of the country is going about prosthesis solutions no more.

 

And it dawned on me that the meaning of diplomacy and legibility need to explain and educate the Iraqi our street, so that we , as diplomats , it can provide and produce in the various host Yards, do not hesitate and we are in the host country a thousand times before stepping forward for fear of the reactions within the political and mass Iraqi arena .

 

Strategic planning as a verb needs will strengthen again in the program and an entity of the Iraqi state as a whole , as , for example, we did not make use much of the aid that has been and continues to give us friendly countries , unfortunately , we , as a society and government, we need to improve our relationships with others manage to put a roadmap deliberate and clear to get us out of the neck of sectarian, ethnic and partisan bottle and nationalism that we put in it or put ourselves in them.

 

 

I could have continued my work as an ambassador to Iraq here in Washington, or the honor of representing in other Iraqi embassy or within the ministry center in Baghdad , the work of the ambassador of the most beautiful and the most useful and most prestigious business that created a government sufficient ingredients for success , but I decided to finish the official my connection device of the Iraqi state , while come to the conclusion after a deep and long review of the structure of the state weakens every day and prestige bleed quickly with our need , as a state, to pause a real review of the sad realities and the need also to timely and necessary treatments that accommodation energies that address possible that part of this need. We are unarmed diplomats like soldiers on the battlefield without Supply enough or continue moving , we do not have only a few of the requirements of the difficult task of diplomacy Almaatarkat of clear goals or strategic directions and supporting informed of the pillars of the state and its agencies .

 

Although I had finished my official work and the honor of representing my country as an ambassador of the Iraqi state , but that does not mean I Sonqta from continuing in Iraq, serving under other umbrellas , the need to rebuild Iraq is increasing every day and hope to improve the case should continue , Vchgv service of Iraq was never finished because he Sharaf not surmounted by the honor , and the section that echoed with myself to serve my country and my community remains what remained .

Also thanks to the people of Iraq of our community stones abroad for their support and Msnadthm .
