Statement by President Obama on Iraqi Government Formation

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–December 21, 2010. 

Today’s vote in the Council of Representatives is a significant moment in Iraq’s history and a major step forward in advancing national unity.  I congratulate Iraq’s political leaders, the members of the Council of Representatives, and the Iraqi people on the formation of a new government of national partnership.  

Yet again, the Iraqi people and their elected representatives have demonstrated their commitment to working through a democratic process to resolve their differences and shape Iraq’s future.  Their decision to form an inclusive partnership government is a clear rejection of the efforts by extremists to spur sectarian division.  
Iraq faces important challenges, but the Iraqi people can also seize a future of opportunity.  The United States will continue to strengthen our long-term partnership with Iraq’s people and leaders as they build a prosperous and peaceful nation that is fully integrated into the region and international community.
