The United Nations remains committed to helping Iraqis build a peaceful future, a UN spokesperson said Wednesday.

"Our focus is not at looking back, but rather at helping Iraqis build a peaceful future," said Michele Montas, when asked about the role UN chief Ban Ki-moon is playing in Iraq five years after the start of the war there.

The United Nations has been doing all it can and it will continue to do so, working under Security Council resolutions, Montas said.

She said the United Nations has helped the Iraqis hold two national elections and draft their Constitution.

The United Nations, she added, has also worked to promote national reconciliation, regional dialogue, the International Compact, the protection of human rights and the provision of humanitarian, reconstruction and development assistance.

"The secretary-general is committed to seeing the United Nations doing more in support of the people of Iraq, as circumstances permit," Montas said.
