Not the time to cut and run

Labour Minister Meg Munn reports in Progress on seeing Barham Salih, Deputy Prime Minister of Iraq speak in the Commons and says that Whilst listening to him describe governing the country, it became clearer to me just how much Iraq is a country in transition, and that it continues to need our help and support. It was a dictatorship for 35 years, during which its political and social fabric was degraded completely. The current journey of transition cannot be anything but demanding and painful.
