His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Mohammed Saeed al-Hakeem met with a delegation from the European Union, led by Jan Figel, the EU Special Envoy for Freedom of Religion and Belief outside the EU, on Tuesday 9th Jamadi-ul-Ula 1438.

Mr Figel reviewed with His Eminence what the EU has presented as humanitarian aid for the Iraqi Popular Mobilisation, while appreciating the role of the Marjeiyya in the safety and protection of people and their property.

His Eminence called the international community for a forceful intervention to fight terrorism who wish to eradicate and destroy all those who do not share their views, and His Eminence made clear that the Marjeiyya cares greatly in protecting the lives of innocent civilians, women, children and their properties.

The delegation was accompanied by the EU ambassador in Baghdad, Patrick Simonnet, who also expressed his gratitude to the religious Marjeiyya that provided the opportunity for this fruitful meeting.
