New Italian Leader: Iraq War 'Grave Mistake'

Italy’s incoming prime minister, Romano Prodi, said the war had encouraged global terrorism and he has vowed to pull his country’s troops from Iraq.


The Guardian:

The incoming Italian prime minister, Romano Prodi, today described the US-led invasion of Iraq as a “grave mistake” that had encouraged global terrorism.

Mr Prodi, who narrowly won last month’s general election, said he would consult with US-led forces in Iraq over Italian troop withdrawal.

“We consider the war and occupation in Iraq a grave error that hasn’t solved – but has complicated – the problem of security,” he said in his first address to the Senate since becoming prime minister.
