British PM: UK will meet its obligations in Iraq

July 31, 2007 23:55

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Tuesday that Britain would meet its obligations in Iraq, but acknowledged separately that British intelligence failures early on preceded the war there. Brown made part of the comments in response to a question from Iraq's UN Ambassador Hamid Al-Bayati, who asked the prime minister if Britain would bow to pressure from the British people to withdraw its troops from Iraq. Brown said Britain would meet its obligations, but acknowledged that "the pace of reconstruction could be quicker." Brown took the question after a speech at the UN to an audience of business leaders, non-governmental organizations and international delegates.
