EUAM Iraq Head of Mission Dr. Markus Ritter met today with the Deputy Minister and Head of Federal Intelligence and Investigative Agency (FIIA), Major General Maher Najm Abdulhussein al-Taie, at the Ministry of Interior (MoI).
Deputy Minister al-Taie praised EUAM Iraq’s efforts and work on the security sector reform (SSR).
- The EUAM Iraq advisors are embedded within the FIIA, which gives them a special access and status. This enables them to provide strategic advise directly to the General Directorates of Counterterrorism and Countering Organised Crime.
Head of Mission Ritter expressed his gratitude for the good cooperation between the two entities.
- Cooperation between FIIA and EUAM Iraq has been the spearhead of the Mission’s work on SSR in Iraq. Important part of the Mission’s advisory efforts is the development of the national counterterrorism and countering organised crime strategies.
Both parties agreed to continue and increase the cooperation in the future.
