"Militia is a national force that has efficiently participated in defeating terrorism and protection of the motherland. I do not support militia dissolution, but I am in favour of its structuring. I have been working on militia structuring in order to turn it into a dynamic force within the country's defence units, which have no relation to politics and are far from any party affiliation", Abadi stated.
The statement comes a day after an explosion in Mosul, Northern Iraq, that left two people injured, according to media reports.
The situation in Iraq remains unstable, as terrorists continue staging regular attacks on Iraqi troops and civilians.
