UN Security Council urges swift creation of inclusive Iraqi govt

UNITED NATIONS, Aug 13 (Reuters) - The U.N. Security Council said on Wednesday it was encouraged by the nomination of Iraq's Prime Minister-designate Haider al-Abadi as it was an important step toward creating an inclusive government representing all parts of the country's society.

In a statement, the 15-member council urged al-Abadi "to work swiftly to form such a government as quickly as possible and within the constitutional time-frame" and called on "all political parties and their supporters to remain calm and respect the political process governed by the Constitution."
