Asefi: Formation of interim cabinet a step toward people`s rule

Tehran, Sept 2, IRNA -- Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi
assessed here Tuesday the formation of the first interim cabinet by
the Iraqi Governing Council as a step towards transferring
administration of country`s affairs to the people.
Asefi hoped the move would lead to full restoration of the
people`s sovereignty and establishment of security and stability in
the country and the Iraqi nation would undertake administration of
all the affairs of their own country as soon as possible.
He laid emphasis on the necessity of acceleration of withdrawal of
the occupying forces from the Iraqi soil.
Iraq`s transitional Governing Council on Monday named a new
25-member post-war government with 13 ministries going to Muslim
Shiites, five to Sunnis, five to Kurds, one to Turkmen and one to
Christians.
