Dear Miss Campbell, I am pleased to congratulate you and your staff on the opening of Consulate General Basra. Covering four southern provinces -- Basra, Dhi Qar, Muthanna and Maysan -- this important new facility will advance our efforts to build an enduring partnership with the Iraqi government and the Iraqi people.
