"We have carried out more than our share of tasks, this is our last Christmas in Iraq," he told the soldiers, "We have achieved all the aims of the mission." The PM also met with the Polish ambassador to Iraq, Edward Pietrzyk, who was recently injured in an attack. Pietrzyk's main task now will be to prepare the soldiers for departure, however, Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski also said that the ambassador will help transform the Polish presence from its military purpose to economics. "He has presented me a full and ambitious program to change the nature of our presence in Iraq," announced Sikorski. (Rzeczpospolita, p. A6; Dziennik, p. 6; Gazeta Wyborcza, p. 13) A.K.
