Iraq: Peace Keeping Operations

Volume 458: debated on Monday 26 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations she has made on the raids of 23 and 25 February 2007 by US and Iraqi forces on the head offices of the General Federation of Iraqi Workers; what reports she has received on the damage caused; and if she will make a statement. (129566)

We have made no representations on this matter. We are aware of the raids on the offices of the General Federation of Iraqi Workers. These were carried out by Iraqi security forces with the backing of multi-national forces as part of ongoing security operations—several other offices and institutions have also been subject to similar operations. We strongly support the Iraqi Government’s efforts to improve security, which are essential to improving the situation across the whole country.
