We regret Minister of Interior Nouri Badranís decision to resign.  He has served with skill and courage in a difficult position at a difficult time.  He deserves the thanks of the Iraqi people, and he certainly has ours.


            The Ministry of Interior is a key institution, responsible for handling the internal security threats and law enforcement challenges Iraq faces.  As we have seen in recent days, Interior Ministry forces are often on the front line in responding to terrorism and insurrection.


            In view of the importance of this position, we anticipate filling it promptly following consultations with Iraqi leaders.  We will ensure that Iraq has a very strong and dedicated security team.




Mr. Massoud Barzani                                                   L. Paul Bremer III

President                                                                      Administrator

Iraq Governing Council                                     Coalition Provisional Authority
