Iraqi Government Supports Moscow Position On Chechnya

The Iraqi government supports the position of Moscow on the Chechen problem, Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz told Russian journalists Wednesday. "We are against any forms of separatism in Russia, we support its unity, do not support the rebellion in Chechnya and do not regard the problem of Chechen rebels as Islamic," he said. The Deputy Prime Minister added he intended to visit Moscow soon to exchange opinions with the Russian government on bilateral relations and to discuss the UN Security Council position on the Iraqi problem. "As a matter of fact, this opinions' exchange is to be held in October but the exact date of my visit to Moscow has not been fixed yet," Tariq Aziz added.
