Today is a welcome occasion to highlight the new stage that Iraq has embarked upon after so many years of suffering and devastation. It is the stage of substituting the confrontation of the past for cooperation towards a joint future. It is the stage where quality of life will be the yardstick after long years when primarily survival mattered. It is the stage also of counting the people that make up Iraq: counting the numbers as much as counting the aspirations. In order to deliver services accordingly the one cannot be without the other.
