UAE will back implementation of roadmap: UAE FM

London - A UAE senior official urged today the international community to mobilize its resources to help reconstruction in Iraq. 'Arab and GCC countries should lead the drive for Iraq's reconstruction as the Iraqis need the support of Arab fellows to overcome their current crisis,' UAE Foreign Minister Rashid Abdullah told a press conference he held on the sideline of the visit to Britain by H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UE Armed Forces.

On Sheikh Khalifa's talks with British Prime Minister Tony Blair, the minister said the discussions were important and deep. 'Sheikh Khalifa took the opportunity of his trip to London to emphasise on his talks on the most urgent regional and international agenda, notably the Palestinian cause, which is now taking off for a new course conducive to the final settlement,' he said.

On the situation in Iraq, the minister explained that 'Sheikh Khalifa underlined that the only way out for Iraq to get out of the mess is the formation of a national government capable of running the country's affairs and working for the return of Iraq to the Arab fold. 'We want Iraq to set its house right and then look at its joining the GCC,' Abdullah said when he asked about a plan to accept Iraq as a GCC member. Asked if there were any divergence in the US and British approa

ches to Iraq, he said Blair's approach centres on the quick creation of a national Iraqi government, but, the minister noted that Iraq is not ready yet for that step which needs more time and concessions from all concerned parties.

Commenting on the expected visit to the UAE by Iranian President Mohammed Khatami, Abdullah said: 'The Iranian head of state is welcomed in the UAE and we hope the visit will add new blocks to the UAE-Iranian relations. Answering a question on the role of the UAE and GCC in implementing the roadmap, he said, when the Palestinian people opted to back the roadmap, the UAE would be ready to support and assist them. Striking an optimistic note, Abdullah said that he hoped to see a Palestinian state by 2005.

Abdullah denied reports that the US and Britain had asked the UAE to stop its humanitarian assistance to certain groups in Palestine, saying: ' Our humanitarian assistance to the Palestinian people are declared and they reach to their targeted sectors. No one has asked us to stop them and that these food and medical relief aid pose a threat or being given to illegible people. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM
