UN envoy warns Iraq could plunge into chaos

PanARMENIAN.Net - The UN special envoy to Iraq said on Saturday, July 12, the country could plunge into chaos if its divided parliament fails to move forward on forming a government in its next session set for Sunday.

Nickolay Mladenov called on all lawmakers to attend the session.

Lack of progress on choosing the top three government posts - president, prime minister, and speaker - "will only serve the interests of those who seek to divide the people of Iraq and destroy their chances for peace and prosperity," he said in a statement.
