Salih asserted the necessity to provide essential reform in the construction of the state and its associations, adding “Corruption is the main reason of all problems and it did not come from nowhere, it came from violence, terrorism, war and terrorism,”

The state is going slow in terms of work even in the regular situations, “The first thing we will do is to investigate around the death of the protesters and the security forces and then to reform the current government for it is inefficient,” added the president.
