UN Envoy in Iraq Stresses Importance of Continued International Aid

New York, Jun 16 2005 10:00AM

The top United Nations envoy in Iraq turned his attention today to the coordination of donor resources for the war-ravaged country ahead of a conference on international assistance in Brussels, Belgium, next week.

Secretary-General Kofi Annan's Special Representative Ashraf Qazi, who has spent much of his time seeking to ensure the participation of all sectors of Iraqi society in writing the country’s new constitution, discussed the importance of continued donor assistance with Finance Minister Ali Abdelamir Allawi and Planning and Development Cooperation Minister Barham Saleh.

The International Conference on Iraq is being co-hosted by the United States and the European Union (EU) on 22 June.
