    BEIRUT, April 14 (RIA Novosti;s Yulia Troitskaya) - Peace and stability in Iraq is possible if the Iraqi government is responsible for the security of the country, Hamid al-Bayati, a representative of the Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq, told RIA Novosti in a telephone interview on Wednesday.

    He said that now coalition forces, instead of the provisional government, are responsible for security in the country.

    The further succession of events in Iraq will depend on how quickly Iraqis receive power, he emphasized. At the same time, he added, "taking foreign workers hostage is unacceptable and can complicate only a situation."
