Sweden’s Foreign Minister criticises Bush’s new Iraq strategy

Carl Bildt says it lacks the political dimensions needed to solve the conflict there.

In a speech on Wednesday, George Bush admitted that unacceptable mistakes had been made and the responsibility rested with him. He then went on to announce that more than 21 thousand extra American troops are being sent to Iraq, where over 130 thousand are already stationed.

Carl Bildt says the increase may well help with security problems around Baghdad, but he is pointing out that it is also important to tackle challenges like the inclusion of different groups in the political process, distribution of oil wealth and getting Iraq’s neighbours to play a part in stabilising the country.
