The Speaker and the Czech Ambassador discussed the current post-election political situation in Iraq and the challenges to forming the next Iraqi cabinet.

Speaker Faiq said, "At this stage what is needed is for the political parties to reach an agreement as soon as possible and form the new Iraqi cabinet, and to have a strong government in terms of economic policy that can bring peace and stability, which will improve the general situation in the Kurdistan Region as well. This is what we all want."
