Statements by the Spokesperson

The designation of a new Prime Minister, Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi, is an important step towards overcoming the political deadlock in the country. Iraq urgently needs a functioning transitional government that can focus on the accountability, reforms, and the organisation of the new elections. The European Union will continue supporting the legitimate aspirations of the Iraqi people for a strong and effective state with accountable institutions that serve the citizens.
