Kofi Annan Comments Do Not Reflect Reality

The Iraqi Ambassador to Canada Howar Ziad, who is also a senior advisor to the Iraqi President, has expressed his disgust with comments by the United Nations Secretary General. Howar writes: Instead of spearheading the Saddam Nostalgia Club, we expect the UN secretary general to be constructive and to contribute positive ideas to the democratic process in Iraq,” he said in a statement, and added that they expect Mr. Annan to help the people of Iraq confront terrorism that is undermining Iraqis’ interests.
