Iraq's Sunni vice president on Saturday called on insurgents and militant groups to join the political process and take part in the Shiite-led government's national reconciliation plan. Tariq al-Hashimi said Iraqis still have time to avoid sectarian conflict "as the rules of the game have been changed and problems can't be solved only by weapons." "This is a call for the Iraqi resistance to think thoughtfully and sit around the negotiating table before it's too late," al-Hashimi told about 100 people at the Islamic University in Azamiyah. "Differences will devastate Iraq and this division is not to our benefit."
