The interviewer’s questions focused on four main issues:

Some of the questions asked and answered are:

• On what basis would peace [between Iraq and Iran] be established, since Iraq has so far made many concessions for the sake of peace?
• It is rumored by some western analysts that the economic situation in Iraq is bad and some even say that it is disastrous. Would Your Excellency give us an idea of the economic  situation [in Iraq]?
• Would it be an economic bulwark if Khomeini seized the Gulf?
• Is Your Excellency pleased with the stands of the Arab governments towards this war?
• Does Your Excellency believe that there are countries that play a double game and may not consequently be distressed to see Iraq and Iran at war?
• Is Your Excellency prepared to tolerate the activities of a Communist Party in Iraq?
• Concerning Franco-Iraqi relations, I believe Your Excellency has talked about them favorably. Is Your Excellency pleased with the results of the talks recently held in Paris by Tareq Aziz?
• There is another partner, the Soviet Union, whose role in this war has not always been clear. How are relations at present between Iraq and the Soviet Union?
