The American Embassy in Baghdad said today, Saturday, that the nomination of Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi to head the new Iraqi government must be followed by an investigation of the claims of Iraqi demonstrators.

“The current circumstances in Iraq and the region require an independent and impartial government committed to meeting the needs of the Iraqi people,” the embassy said in a statement, Saturday evening, Saturday.

She continued, “The nomination of Mr. Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi as the new prime minister of Iraq must be followed up with real efforts to ensure that this goal is achieved.”

The statement added, “The United States considers that the security of Iraq is vital, and will work with the new government as soon as it is formed to create conditions for a stable, prosperous, and sovereign Iraq.”
