Nadhim Zahawi calls on the Government to ensure British Embassy has sufficient resources to support a peaceful future for Mosul

22nd November 2016

Nadhim Zahawi commends the work of our ambassador to Iraq, Frank Baker, and calls on the Government to ensure that the British Embassy has all the resources need to help ensure a peaceful future for post-Daesh Mosul.

The Foreign Secretary rightly talks about the challenges of post-Daesh Mosul. I would like to mention on the record the excellent work that our ambassador, Frank Baker, is doing on politics beyond Daesh. Will my right hon. Friend make available to Frank and his team all the resources necessary to ensure we get the peace beyond Daesh right in Mosul?


My hon. Friend and I of course travelled to see Frank Baker a while ago, so we know what excellent work he does, and he has a very large team in Baghdad. It is a superb team and a real tribute to the work of the Foreign Office. As I say, they are working very hard to minimise the fallout from the liberation of Mosul and to ensure a peaceful and stable future for that city.
