February 27, 2007 -- British Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett says a failed Iraq would pose as great a risk to international security as Afghanistan did when it was ruled by the Taliban.
Beckett, speaking during a visit to Pakistan, said the fate of Iraq "still hangs in the balance." But she said international efforts to stabilize the country will continue.
