The motorcycles were donated to Iraq from the government of Japan as a part of its effort to help in the reconstruction of Iraq.
“I am much encouraged to observe a drastic improvement in security in Iraq thanks to the effort of the Iraqi Security Forces, Coalition forces and many other people concerned,” said Monji.
Japan has been conducting humanitarian, reconstruction and rebuilding assistance to Iraq through their self defense force and by the aid of more than 5 billion U.S. dollars.
The contribution of these motorcycles allows the Iraqi Police to move more freely and quickly through the congested streets of Baghdad and other outlined cities.
“I expect further effort will be made by all Iraqis towards the national reconciliation under the improved security,” said Monji. “And Japan will continue to support Iraq and its people in rebuilding the great nation.”
