United Nations: Secretary-General Reiterates Importance Of Iraq’s Constitutional Review Process


The following statement was issued today by the Spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:

As Iraq’s Constitutional Review Committee prepares to submit the results of its deliberations to the full Parliament, the Secretary-General reiterates the importance of the constitutional review process and of finalizing the outstanding issues that are vital to the process of national reconciliation in Iraq. The Committee has undertaken its work responsibly in an atmosphere of mutual respect, and should be applauded.

Striking a compromise on the core constitutional issues at the heart of Iraq’s system of governance is essential for establishing stability in the country. The Secretary-General hopes that Iraqi leaders will embrace this opportunity by rising above narrow sectarian interests, remaining open to compromise, and fostering consensus. The United Nations remains fully committed to a national dialogue towards a Constitution than can be supported by all Iraqis.
