Arab countries are demanding that Iraq do more to reach out to disgruntled Sunni Arabs before pledging any substantial aid to the troubled country, according to a document obtained by The Associated Press before a key US-backed summit. The stance, and the festering tensions between Iraq and its neighbors, are complicating the US and Iraqi goal of rounding up strong support, including forgiveness of Iraq's huge debts, before next week's summit in Egypt. Iraq's prime minister, on a Mideast tour, said this week that his country would not tolerate other Arab countries setting conditions on Iraq. He also accused some Arab countries of still harboring extremists who infiltrate Iraq to launch attacks. "We welcome consultations but we won't accept conditions or dictation," Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Monday in an interview with a group of journalists, including The Associated Press.
