WASHINGTON/LONDON, January 02(Online): The leaders of the United States and Britain have pledged in New Yearís messages to continue to support Iraq and Afghanistan as the two countries move toward peace and democracy.

President George W. Bush, in a written statement to mark the start of 2006, noted elections in 2005 in Iraq and Afghanistan and said America will continue to stand beside what he called these "young democracies" as they lay the foundation of peace.

Prime Minister Tony Blair, in his New Yearís message, pledged that Britain will continue efforts to bring hope and democracy to Afghanistan and Iraq. Blair, citing last July 7ís bombings in London which killed 52 people, also vowed that Britainís resolve would not slip in the battle against terrorism.
