Iraq Announces New Heads of Missions Abroad

Iraq Announces New Heads of Missions Abroad

By Sabah Jerges Associated Press Writer
Published: Jul 19, 2004






BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Less than a month after regaining sovereignty from the U.S. occupation authority, Iraq on Monday announced the appointment of 43 new ambassadors in its first move to re-engage with the world.
Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari declined to name the new ambassadors, who are being sent to a range of countries, including many Arab nations.

"This is the first step in restoring Iraq's diplomatic representation," he said. "Iraq is an important country and needs to have as much diplomatic relations as possible with the world."

Many of the ambassadors will be appointed to the 31 Iraqi embassies around the world that are now closed, Zebari said. Others will open new embassies.

The list of ambassadors took six months to compile and was created with an eye toward competency and political considerations, he said, a difficult task in a country with deep ethnic and religious divides.

2. Notice that they did not even dare release their names!
And that they have been compiling the list for six months....So much for sovereignty.
