Monetary Fund.

Addressing Baghdad International Forum to Fight Corruption, Mladenov said based on statistics released by Iraq Financial Supervision Office, a sum of at least 65 billion dollars has been ransacked from the country during the US-led Iraq war.

Mladenov said the corrupt statesmen in all over the world have already blockaded the progress of under developed countries through spoiling the natural wealth of these countries.

He also added fighting corruption in an international level requires that all members states of UN to be totally obligated to the content of international conventions in this regard.

After passage of some years, the US and Britain are trying to block an inquiry into US-led war on Iraq.

According to a recent report by The Independent, the administration of US President Barack Obama insists that certain parts of the Iraq inquiry, known as the Chilcot Inquiry, could not be released as it is focused on the pre-war conspiracy hatched by former US President George W. Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

On March 19, 2003, US-led forces invaded Iraq under the pretext of wiping out the stocks of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) belonging to the executed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s regime. However, no such weapons were ever found in the country.

Hundreds of thousands of people were killed and Iraq’s infrastructure was destroyed following the US-led invasion and subsequent occupation of the country.
