The United States is expecting donor contributions for Iraq stabilization and humanitarian funding to exceed $2 billion, a US Department of State official told reporters.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, the United States will co-host a pledging conference in Washington, DC that aims to raise funding for demining, stabilization and humanitarian assistance efforts in Iraq.

"We’re [the United States] hoping to raise in excess of $2 billion in what has been a roughly six-and-a-half-week pledging effort," the State Department official stated on Monday. "We believe that we are going to hit that target of $2 billion on Wednesday."
