BAGHDAD (AP) – Vice President Dick Cheney said Wednesday that “we’ve got a long way to go” in reducing violence in Iraq in a trip punctuated by an explosion that shook windows at the U.S. Embassy, where Cheney was visiting.

The vice president urged that Iraq’s parliament abandon plans for a two-month summer vacation while U.S. forces are fighting. With important issues pending, including how to share Iraq’s oil wealth, “any undue delay would be difficult to explain,” Cheney said.

As Democrats clamor for an end to the four-year-old war and President Bush sags in the polls, the White House is under intense political pressure to show that Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s government is making progress. Cheney urged Iraq’s leaders to do more to reduce violence and promote political reconciliation.

White House counselor Dan Bartlett said in Washington that Cheney’s trip “gives an opportunity at a very high level for this message to be delivered.”
