Iraq to Appoint 43 Ambassadors Today
The Iraqi government will announce appointments of ambassadors to 43 countries in a move to re-establish relations with other nations.
The ambassadors, many of whom will be sent to neighboring Arab countries, would be appointed Monday, Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said during a joint news conference with U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage.
"We are indebted to the United States for its support and continuing support both in liberating Iraq and reconstructing Iraq," Allawi said after the meeting.
American "imperialism" at its finest - so far - until the Iraqi people have their elections for the first time. Ever.
