Britain and Poland vow to stay course in Iraq

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By Madeline Chambers

LONDON, May 6 (Reuters) - Poland and Britain renewed their commitment to keeping troops in Iraq on Thursday and condemned the abuse of prisoners by soldiers in the U.S-led coalition.

"An alliance is an alliance, we have obligations and we will carry them out," Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski told reporters after meeting Prime Minister Tony Blair during a state visit.

He said Poland, which currently has 2,400 soldiers in Iraq, was prepared to send a third contingent of troops and aimed to withdraw only after stability was returned to Iraq.

Britain is expected to confirm next week that it will send more troops to bolster the 7,500 it has there. Blair's spokesman said a review of troops was being conducted "in a measured way" and would take "a bit more time" to complete.
