Asked for a reaction to today’s bomb attack in Iraq, the PMOS said that as we had made clear consistently from the outset, we recognised that such attacks would be stepped up in this period as terrorists tried to disrupt Iraq’s transition to a democracy. Prime Minister Allawi, who was leading the Iraqi Government and its response to the terrorism, had underlined his determination not to allow that transition to be thrown off course. That was a position which we fully supported. The PMOS added that Prime Minister Allawi was due to visit the UK shortly and journalists would be given an opportunity to hear his views for themselves.

Asked if Downing Street agreed with the head of the Iraqi Christian Church’s opinion that Iraq might be a safer place if Paul Bremer were to return, the PMOS pointed out that the comment had not actually been made by the head of the Iraqi Church.
