Shii meets with incoming Iraqi ambassador

Japanese Communist Party Chair Shii Kazuo on March 27 held talks with incoming Iraqi Ambassador to Japan Khalil Ismail Al Mosawi at the JCP head office in Tokyo.

The ambassador referred to the development of relationships between Japan and Iraq which started 80 years ago. He also touched on various topics, including the 15-years of attempts to recover from hardships, the coming general election slated for May, and tasks for overcoming sectarianism and work toward national reconciliation.

Shii expressed his hope for the further development of the two nations’ relations of friendship and explained the JCP position in regard to the 2003 Iraq War. Shii also said that the party criticized the Hussain administration which wielded dictatorial power, but that the party was opposed to any military action taken by external forces in violation of the UN Charter to bring down the Hussain regime.
