EU Urges Formation of Inclusive Gov’t in Iraq

Brussels, June 23 (QNA) -The EU on Monday expressed deep concern over the rapidly deteriorating security and humanitarian situation in Iraq.

The EU Foreign Affairs Council, meeting in Luxembourg, said in a statement the EU reiterated its “firm commitment to Iraq’s unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity, which are essential for stability and economic development in the country and the region.”
It also voiced its support to “the Iraqi authorities in the fight against terrorism and emphasized that the security response needs to be combined with a sustainable political solution by the Government of Iraq involving all Iraqi leaders and communities in a spirit of national unity, putting their differences aside to jointly combat this threat and to restore security and the rule of law. Failure to do so will exacerbate the conflict and deepen the sectarian divide,” noted the statement, carried by the Kuwaiti news agency KUNA.(QNA)
