MOSCOW, September 10 (ITAR-TASS). Moscow believes that Iraq’s new authorities will wage consistent struggle against the Islamic State militants, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
Russia is “closely watching the political process in Iraq.”
“We are pleased to note that it is taking place in compliance with the Iraqi state’s constitution,” the Russian Foreign Ministry went on to say.
“The fact that a new (Iraqi) government has been formed is demonstrating the readiness of responsible political forces and ethnic and confessional groups to act in accord and give up narrow political ambitions for the sake of achieving goals that are common for all Iraqis. Moscow welcomes the Iraqi leadership’s efforts to promote national dialogue and is expressing its confidence that the new authorities in Iraq will wage consistent struggle against the militants of the Islamic State group and will continue pursuing a line towards strengthening friendly ties with Russia,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
“We hope that Iraq’s cabinet of ministers that is getting down to its duties will immediately start solving urgent issues on the pan-Iraqi agenda in a bid to rally anti-terror efforts and resolve the complicated humanitarian situation in the country through broad and effective international assistance,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in conclusion.
A new government was formed in Iraq on September 8. The majority of Iraqi deputies voted for the candidates to vice-premiers and ministers proposed by Prime Minister Haidar Abadi. Parliament also approved the candidacies of three Iraqi vice-presidents - Nouri al-Maliki, Ayad Allawi and Osama al-Nujaifi. The posts of defense and interior ministers are still vacant.
