CALLS FOR INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT OF IGC

Ref: Abu Dhabi 3816

1. (U) UAE MinState for Foreign Affairs Sheikh
Hamdan Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan (HbZ) issued a
statement August 20 condemning the attack on the
UN headquarters in Baghdad, and calling on the
international community to stand united in
supporting the UN and the Iraqi Governing
Council (GC) to restore security and stability
in Iraq. The statement comes a day after the
UAEG expressed strong public support for the
visiting GC delegation led by Council President
Dr. Ahmed Al-Jafari (see reftel).

2. (U) HbZ labeled the August 19 truck bombing a
"criminal and cowardly" act that targeted the
international organization, its values,
principles and humanitarian mission as well as
its efforts to help Iraq restore its security
and stability and protect its independence and
territorial integrity. This aggression exposes
the real enemies of Iraq, peace and stability."

3. (U) He added that such a crime obligates the
international community to take a decisive
position and to redouble and intensify the UN
efforts in Iraq. He also called for the support
of the Iraqi Governing Council to enable it to
achieve security, stability and the
reconstruction of Iraq.

4. (U) HbZ offered his condolences to UNSYG Kofi
Annan and to the families and victims of the
blast.
