BAGHDAD — A Sunni-backed political bloc said Saturday it will join efforts to produce a national unity government, backing away from a threat to boycott parliament.

Iraqiya's decision raised hopes that lawmakers could resolve disputes that have threatened to derail an agreement intended to bring all of Iraq's major blocs into the government. The deal announced this week ended an eight-month impasse that had stalled the formation of a new government, but almost immediately began to unravel when Iraqiya walked out of the session.
