Blasts In Iraq Green Zone Underscore UN Concerns About Security – Spokesman
United Nations concerns about security in Iraq have been underscored by recent bombings in the Baghdad Green Zone, a UN spokesman said today.
Stephane Dujarric told reporters that senior UN envoy Ashraf Jehangir Qazi, who arrived today in the Iraqi capital, will have a number of meetings with political leaders and multinational force officials on the ground.
“Let’s see what comes out of those meetings,” he said in response to questions, noting that the violence highlighted the UN’s concerns about safety.
Mr. Dujarric added that the UN has not heard back formally from the multinational force concerning a dedicated unit of the multinational force that would deal with security for the world body.
