New Iraq resolution in line with Russian interests

The UN Security Council Resolution on Iraq maximally considers Russia's interests, deputy head of presidential administration Sergei Prikhodko told journalists.

According to him, the resolution is likely to be adopted today in New York "only in several hours." Prikhodko called the resolution "a common success" and its adoption "the victory of common sense." The official was pleased to note that the resolution "returns the Iraqi issue to the UN legal field under the control of its Security Council." "At the consultations, all the parties showed flexibility and constructive approach, including the U.S. which listened to the opinion of Russia and other countries," Prikhodko said.

He recalled that the current text of the resolution was the fourth draft version. According to Prikhodko, it considers the opinions of the Security Council members to the greatest extent.

Prikhodko did not rule out that the resolution could be approved by "a significant majority of the Security Council members and, probably, by a consensus." "The new resolution on Iraq lays an adequate foundation to consider and ensure Russia's long-term interests in Iraq," he added.

According to him, the resolution makes it possible to accomplish a lot of contracts that have already been signed.

"The resolution does not affect or question the long-term agreements of Russian companies in the oil sector," he said.

According to Prikhodko, this issue will be discussed with an internationally recognised government of Iraq after it is formed.
