Turkey says welcomes Iraq's adoption of new vote law

Turkey on Monday welcomed Iraqi Parliament's decision to pass a law paving the way for general elections.

Iraqi parliament held a general session on November 8, 2009 and adopted the law on general elections.

Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement and said an important step has been taken in the political process in Iraq after adoption of the law.

The statement said parliamentary elections would take place in January 2010 as it was planned earlier.

"The elections will play an important role for the success of democratization and stability works in Iraq. Turkey, attaching great importance to security and welfare in Iraq, will continue to support Iraq in the process towards elections," the statement said.
