Iraq has officially requested the UN Security Council to extend the term of UNAMI in Iraq for another year, reports Aswat al-Iraq.

The request was submitted by Iraqi ambassador Mohammed Ali al-Hakeem to the United Nations.

He requested that UNAMI will have logistic assistance to provide adequate observers for the coming parliamentary election, to be held in the middle of next year.

Ambassador Hakeem also denounced the attacks on the anti-Iranian Camp Liberty residents and praised Albania for granting refugee status to 270 camp residents, as well as the German government for receiving 100 Iranians.

On the current demonstrations, he pointed out that the government is seriously trying to meet the legal demands of the demonstrators according to Iraqi constitution.
