Iraq – Statement by Laurent Fabius (August 11, 2014)

As I said yesterday on my visit to Baghdad and Erbil, at a time when its sovereignty, unity and integrity are under serious threat, Iraq needs a broad-based government.

We lend our full support to the efforts Iraqi President Fouad Massoum—to whom I spoke yesterday—is making to this end, and we call on all Iraq’s political leaders to engage in dialogue to find a swift political solution acceptable to all the country’s constituent groups.

The process begun at the time of the general election on April 30, 2014, must continue and lead to a political solution which is acceptable to every segment of the Iraqi population and respects everyone’s rights.
