Prince Saud addresses Brussels conference on Iraq

Minister of Foreign Affairs Prince Saud Al-Faisal, in his address  today to the conference in Brussels on the reconstruction of Iraq, declared that Saudi Arabia urges the adoption of the principle of non-interference in Iraq’s internal affairs, stressing the need to retain the country’s territorial integrity. This, he said, is the view that the Kingdom has always held: that Iraq should be an independent and unified country enjoying security, stability and prosperity, and at peace with its neighbors. The one-day conference is being hosted by the European Union and the United States at the request of Iraq's transitional government.
