In Jordan, UN Envoy Says Recent Terror Attacks Underscore Need For Peace In Iraq
New York, Nov 15 2005
The recent terror attacks in Jordan underscore the urgency of bringing peace to Iraq, a senior United Nations official
said today following high-level meetings in Amman.
In a meeting with Jordanian Prime Minister Adnan Badran, UN Iraq envoy Ashraf Jehangir Qazi expressed sympathy for the
tragic loss of life perpetrated by terrorists against innocent civilians in Amman and said the attacks called attention
to the broader need for stability.
Mr. Qazi briefed Prime Minister Badran on the latest development in Iraq, including Secretary General Kofi Annan's visit
to Baghdad on Saturday.
The two also discussed the upcoming preparatory meeting organized in Cairo under the auspices of the Arab League to
explore how to achieve national reconciliation among different political factions in Iraq.
Mr. Qazi expressed the gratitude of the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) for Jordan's support and assistance.
UNAMI's Amman office is central to its operations.
