US Ambassador to Iraq Douglas Silliman

Baghdad ( – U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Douglas Silliman has said Iraq has great potentials to turn into a truly democratic, sovereign, independent, and prosperous country.

“It has been my honor and privilege to serve as the American Ambassador to Iraq for the past two and a half years,” Silliman said in a farewell message released by the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad as his tenure as America’s Ambassador in Baghdad ends.

“As my assignment ends, I want all Iraqis to know that I see great potential for a truly democratic, sovereign, independent, and prosperous Iraq,” Silliman said, adding that the Iraqi people need to be relieved of corruption and bureaucratic obstacles to unleash their full potentials.

Silliman termed as “growing” economic ties between the U.S. and Iraq, pointing out that American companies want to invest and do business in the Iraqi market.

“I will cherish the friendships and experiences I have had getting to know this vast and historic nation, and I will always wish for peace and prosperity for all Iraqis,” he concluded.

In November 2018, U.S. President Donald Trump named Matthew Tueller to be the new U.S. ambassador to Iraq.

Tueller, who grew up in the foreign service, is currently America’s ambassador to Yemen. He would be the U.S. top diplomat in Baghdad if confirmed by the Senate.
