Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Hussein al-Shahristani said Monday that Qatar's welcoming of the fugitive Sunni and Iraqi Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi was "unacceptable" and called on Doha to hand him over, AFP reported.

"The state of Qatar receiving a wanted person is an unacceptable act and Qatar should back off from this stance, and return him to Iraq," he said.
