Iraq - Parliament Approves New Cabinet

Fox News reports.

BAGHDAD, Iraq — Iraq's parliament approved the country's new Cabinet Saturday, opening the way for the inauguration of a national unity government three years after the U.S.-led invasion toppled Saddam Hussein.

Incoming Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki told the 275-member parliament that he would make restoring stability and security the top priority of his new administration.

Approval of the Cabinet is the final stage in formation of a national unity government the United States hopes can calm the violence raging in the country.
