The US ambassador predicted Saturday there will be no "fundamental or quick change" in the American policy on Iraq and appealed for patience as Congress prepares to receive landmark reports on progress toward stability and national reconciliation. Ambassador Ryan Crocker, speaking in Arabic on Al-Arabiya television, said the US administration believes Iraqis have made tangible progress - which Congress has demanded as a condition for continued US support. "Since 2003, there has been a stable policy by the American administration and I don't think there will be a fundamental or quick change in the American policy or stand on Iraq," he said. Crocker also said Iraqis "and the friends of Iraq" should show patience as the country grapples with its political and security crisis.
