BAGHDAD (Xinhua) –Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi has said that the reopening of the heavily fortified Green Zone in central Baghdad is “irreversible.”

“The decision to open the Green Zone is irreversible despite attempts to hamper it. The opening has carried many messages to the people,” Mr Mahdi said.

His comments came a day after the partial and temporal opening of the Green Zone for five hours in the evening, from local time 5:00 pm (1400 GMT) to 10 pm (1900 GMT) for two weeks in order to evaluate the security situation.
