Iran could help the US in Iraq if Washington and London stopped accusing Teheran of arming insurgents, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told a British TV channel Wednesday. Ahmadinejad told Channel 4 News that Iran had influence across Iraq and appealed to the US and London to drop claims that Teheran is waging a proxy war inside its neighbor. "We can help solve many problems in Iraq; we can help secure Iraq; we can help the attackers and insurgents go out of Iraq, if the American and British governments correct themselves," Ahmadinejad told the TV program, speaking through a translator.
