The daughter of the late President of Iraq stressed that “the occupier of the country is clear,” as she described it.
She explained: “If the occupier does not consent to overseeing the execution of“ Q ”of the Prime Time Zone, neither Iranian nor non-Iranian can supervise. The Iranian side wishes as a state and not as a Prime Time Zone waiting for an opportunity to describe their sick hatred.
Regarding the current ruling regime in Iraq, Raghad said: “The ruling group in Iraq do not respect them and they do not care about me.”
And she continued, explaining the reason: “Because today I must categorically refuse to hand over my son and my head of state to other parties, whatever, this is a matter of principle. Regardless of whether it is the parent or non-parent

Saddam Hussein’s daughter said in her interview that Iraqis were living in better conditions during her father’s rule before the invasion and war.
Speaking about freedoms during Saddam’s time, Raghad said that freedom is freedom, and that all the slogans that came after the occupation brought freedom. They are incorrect.

Childhood Raghad Saddam Hussein
About her childhood stage and her relationship with her brothers Uday and Qusay, she said that she was close to them in their childhood, and her sisters were always afraid of her.
And about why Raghad was the one who played the role of defending her father, and she said that because she is the eldest among her sisters.
And that this hierarchy is respected, and that her sisters and mother have great confidence in her.

Memories and wife of the President of Belarus
Regarding the memories, Raghad said that one year she was in university and her mother was traveling due to a family circumstance that belonged to her brother Uday.
So the wife of the President of the State of Belarus visited them, and she was in the university, and her mother was not present, and her absence came as a surprise, and it became that she would deputize for her mother.
Because she grew up in a political house, she managed to deal with the situation, and she, in turn, received the wife of the Belarusian president.
Raghad indicated that there was no political role for her or her mother in the affairs of Iraq, and that she personally was against politics.
She emphasized that she did not need politics at all, and that, as she said, she grew up among “giants” who felt safe among them and that she did not want this political role between them.
She added that at the beginning she felt forced into political action, because when life passes through exceptional circumstances, personalities change.
And she continued, explaining: “At first, I felt that I was on a road that was not mine, and I felt lost, and when the occupation took place. I did not have a role, neither the first nor before it. Until the father was arrested
“Here, I came to the fore and became a decision-maker in this regard, and the decision I must make, and she bears all this role.”
