Tony Abbott needs to tread carefully on Iraq: Bandt

Parliament must debate and approve any Australian involvement beyond the humanitarian efforts in Iraq, Greens Acting Leader Adam Bandt said today.

"The Greens support the humanitarian effort in Iraq, but we are very concerned the government has left the door open on troops."

"Tony Abbott shouldn't try and do a John Howard by slavishly following the United States into another folly in Iraq."

"Parliament is only two weeks away and any action by Tony Abbott in Iraq needs to be debated and approved."
