Iraq's vice president asked for more support from fellow Arabs Sunday, saying it could help keep his country from being abandoned to terrorists and foreign powers. Vice President Tariq al-Hashimi's remarks came in a statement issued after his meeting with Jordan's King Abdullah II - and before regional leaders convene for an Arab Summit on Wednesday in Riyadh, the Saudi Arabian capital.
