- Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi: Our visit today is to see the procedures and defences put in place by our heroes in the security and military forces.
- Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi: I have confidence in your abilities and determination to protect Iraq and Iraqis, and to confront the foolishness of terrorists abroad and within, who seek to perpetuate chaos and undermine state institutions for their own interests.
- Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi: I say to Daesh terrorists, you are a group of gangsters that have no place amongst us. This is our resolve and the resolve of every honorable Iraqi, before it is that of the state, the government, or the security establishment. We will eliminate you and protect our land and honour.
