The MFA of the CR especially appreciates that the draft constitution has been prepared despite difficult circumstances and threats from insurgents, on the basis of a democratic discussion of representatives of all Iraqi communities and political entities. We believe that the continuation of the democratic discussion inside the Iraqi society will enable to overcome antagonism and reservations of some Iraqi representatives towards the draft constitution and will lead to a successful accomplishment of the political process, the next milstone will be the referendum on the Constitution planned on 15th October 2005.

It is the belief of the MFA of the CR, that the successful continuation of the democratic process will have a positive reflection in a progressive stabilisation of the security situation in the country and the acceleration of its economic reconstruction.

The Czech Republic is determined to continue the cooperation with the international community in providing aid to Iraq on its way democracy, stability and economic prosperity.
