02. 09. 2004 ( BBC ) - The new Iraqi ambassador to London has thanked Tony Blair and the government for their role in ridding Iraq of "the "evil dictatorship" of Saddam Hussein.

The Iraqi embassy in the capital has been re-established after several years of broken diplomatic relations.

Salah Al-Shaikhly said the prime minister had been courageous and thanked the UK for its role in rebuilding infrastructure in Iraq.

He also said the Iraqi prime minister would not address a Labour conference.

"The United Kingdom has been a good friend of the Iraqi people, not just in the military sense, but also in its contribution towards the reconstruction of Iraq," Dr Al-Shaikhly said.

"We appreciate the courage of Prime Minister Blair for his steadfast position, and for the British Government's role in liberating our country from the rule of tyranny and evil dictatorship."

With regard to previous reports that Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi might address the Labour Party conference later this month, he said he would definitely not be coming.

"His visit here will only be for about two-and-a-half days and he will be in and out before the conference," he said.
