Iraq: Peacekeeping Operations

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 23 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of the use of Iranian-made rockets in attacks against Iraqi targets and coalition forces in Iraq; and if he will make a statement. (199077)

We consistently monitor the equipment and armaments being used by militias and other insurgents in Iraq. Any support for insurgents through supply of weapons, training or funding contributes to instability in Iraq.

We welcome the Iraqi government's statements that it will not tolerate any outside interference which undermines the prospects for a secure, stable and democratic Iraq.
