The MFA of the Czech Republic welcomes the success of the referendum on the Iraq constitution draft. The high number of voters, including Iraqi Sunnis whose great part could not participate to the last elections, is a positive aspect.

The MFA also appreciates that the Iraqi Government succeeded in ensuring a high level of security, making the participation of voters possible in all Provinces. These circumstances will give a high legitimacy to the results of the referendum.

The MFA believes that the success of the referendum, which confirmed the determination of Iraqi people to continue the democratisation process, will have a positive impact on the progressive stabilisation of the security situation in the country and the acceleration of its economic reconstruction.

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