At a time in which our Iraq country is approaching from finishing the war period and treating its repercussion caused by the ISIS terrorists, we aware that the victory and success are one meaning and result in the battle being waged by our security forces, popular mobilization forces and our universities against the darkness. And hence, we renew our commitment in the scientific task in our institutes and achieving the planned goals that require the education with high quality and efficient management away from all the aims supported by agendas of non-academic goals.

We emphasize again that the universities will not be a part of political plans and we will not allow to use them upon public benefit.
