The Russian president is providing a rallying point for European diplomatic efforts to counter the US-UK threat to peace. Vladimir Putin has pledged to work closely with France and Germany with the aim of achieving a peaceful resolution to the conflict over Iraq.

“We are convinced that a one-sided use of force would lead to great suffering for the Iraqi population and increase tension in the whole region,” Mr Putin said after talks with German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder on Sunday. “Efforts for a peaceful resolution of the situation should be persistently continued.”
