Blair has no regrets regarding Iraq invasion
British Prime Minister Tony Blair has denied reports that soldiers will start withdrawing from Iraq next May.
Any exit strategy "depends on the job being done", he told BBC's Sunday AM. He added that despite "insurgents" infiltrating the Iraqi police forces and the escalating violence in the country, he would have made the same decision to invade Iraq.
"There is no doubt in my mind at all that what is happening in Iraq now is crucial for the future of our own security, never mind the security of Iraq or the greater Middle East," he said.
He said the strategy for withdrawal had always been to "retire as the Iraqi capability builds up".
