Condoleezza Rice to Attend Stockholm Conference
US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, will attend the United Nations Iraq Conference in Stockholm on May 29th.
According to News agency TT, other high level participants include UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. The conference is meant to determine binding political and economical efforts in order to stabilize the deteriorating country.
During the first conference organized by the International Compact with Iraq (ICI) and which was held in Egypt last year, some 50 countries agreed on easing the war-torn country’s debts.
Ahead of the Stockholm conference, Sweden’s Foreign Minister Carl Bildt expressed his hope that the Iraqi delegation will include representatives of all the major ethnic groups.
