The European Union (EU) on Friday urged the international community, especially the countries in the Middle East, to support and promote national reconciliation and stabilization in Iraq.

In a statement issued by Portugal, which holds the rotating six- month EU presidency, the EU also called for efforts to prevent outside interference that could undermine the process of reconciliation and stabilization in the violence-torn Arab state.

The EU welcomed the meeting of the Iraqi Neighbors Border Security Working Group, a follow-up of the Iraq's Neighboring Countries' Conference, held in the Syrian capital Damascus on Wednesday and Thursday.

The EU presidency "emphasizes the need for the Security Working Group to convene regular meetings at the appropriate level in order to explore effective ways and take concrete measures aimed at stabilization and reducing the violence in Iraq, through dialogue and co-operation," said the statement.

Meanwhile, the EU said, in the statement, that it condemns "in the strongest terms" all forms of violence against the Iraqi population and supports a secure, stable, democratic, prosperous and unified Iraq as well as the efforts to promote national reconciliation, the restoration of public order and the rule of law.
