But none of these got to grips with the immediate problems that Russia was experiencing and the leaders of the Provisional Government argued amongst themselves as to the way ahead.

Asked whether the Governing Council has the authority to appoint a provisional government, Pachachi turns again to Resolution 1551, which states that the ICG is the principal body of the Iraqi interim administration and "embodies the sovereignty of the State of Iraq during the transitional period."
