Iraq To Launch Mediation To End Syria Crisis [View all]

Iraq's foreign minister will hold talks with the Damascus regime and opposition groups to try to end months of unrest, as deadly clashes raged Sunday between deserters and regular troops.


Iraq is trying to mediate an end to nine months of bloody unrest in Syria where the UN estimates that more than 5,000 people have been killed in a regime crackdown on pro-democracy protesters.

On Saturday, Iraqi National Security Adviser Falah al-Fayadh was in Damascus where he said he had "positive" talks with Assad.

He then travelled to Cairo where he met Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi, and emerged sounding upbeat.



COMMENT: Anyone else surprised to learn that Iraq is now a diplomatic 'mediator'?
