South African Government Statement on the Capture of Saddam Hussein

The South African Government has noted developments regarding the capture of Saddam Hussein by the coalition forces. The South African Government has since the launch of the war against Iraq avoided commenting on the operational details and developments thereof.

The South African government will continue to support every effort undertaken by the international community, under the auspices of the UN, to bring about the dawn of peace, security, stability and democracy in Iraq.

Critical in this regard, would be an early return of sovereignty to the people of Iraq.
