UK urges political dialogue in Iraq

LONDON, April 30 (KUNA) -- The UK on Tuesday called on Iraqi political and religious leaders to work hard to resolve the deteriorating situation in their country by means of joining comprehensive political dialogue.
Foreign Office Minister for the Middle East and North Africa Alistair Burt said in a news release his country was concerned over violence events that hit Iraq last week and claimed the lives of scores of innocent civilians.
He said the majority of Iraqis do not want to return to the sectarian conflict in their country, but they want a stable, prosperous and democratic country.
The British minister urged all Iraqi political blocs to do what is good for the Iraqi people and to enter serious dialogue to find standing solutions to problems. (end) kd.mt KUNA 302322 Apr 13NNNN
