BAGHDAD - US Secretary of State John Kerry said he had told Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki that Iranian flights carrying arms to Syria through Iraqi airspace were "problematic," during an unannounced visit to Iraq on Sunday.

"Anything that supports President Assad is problematic," Kerry told reporters. "I made it very clear to the prime minister that the overflights from Iran ... are in fact helping to sustain President Assad and his regime."

Kerry also said Obama felt his talks with Israeli and Palestinian officials were the most positive he had had to date.
