Dossier: Lakhdar Brahimi

The article presents information that for months, former Algerian Foreign Minister Lakhdar Brahimi was at the forefront of negotiations leading to the formation of the Iraqi interim government that formally assumed control of the country on June 29. Whether Brahimi's pledge has been fulfilled remains to be seen, but it appears that the UN special envoy's involvement in Iraq has galvanized regional Arab support for the country's political transition (Yemen and Jordan have already expressed interest in sending peacekeeping troops). From 1963 to 1970, Brahimi served as permanent representative of Algeria to the League of Arab States and ambassador to Egypt and the Sudan.
