Such an attitude

Belgian Development Cooperation Minister Marc Verwilghen has critized France and Germany for their failure to donate any funds to Iraqi reconstruction outside of their EU contribution:

"I find it a shame that France and Germany have stuck to their positions," Development Cooperation Minister Marc Verwilghen told Belgian reporters at the conference.

"I deplore the fact that certain countries have come here to restate their position [against the war]. Iraqis are confronted with immediate needs. Such an attitude does nothing for the Iraqi people," the Belga news agency quoted Mr. Verwilghen as saying.
