Iraqi PM warns Iran on impact from Iraq attacks

April 29, 2007 19:14

Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki told an Iranian envoy Sunday that the persistent attacks in Iraq also threaten the security of other countries, a pointed warning amid U.S. accusations that Tehran is helping to stoke the violence by supporting Shiite militias. Al-Maliki met with top Iranian envoy Ali Larijani in Baghdad as Iran agreed to attend a major US-backed regional conference on Iraq set for this week in Egypt, raising hopes that bringing Iraq's neighbors together will help stabilize the country. "Terrorist operations targeting Iraq will affect all countries in the world that are supposed to be supporting the Iraqi government in its war against terrorism," al-Maliki said in a statement issued by his office, adding that the prime minister also thanked Iran for agreeing to participate in this week's conference in Sharm el-Sheik.
