The EU presidency, held currently by British Prime Minister Tony Blair, issued a statement calling the document an "important milestone" in Iraq's political process.

The EU statement urged all Iraqi's to participate in the ratification vote scheduled for October.

It also offered EU help in preparing for that vote and for national elections scheduled for December.
