Iraqi Envoy to U.S. Hails Iran's Help
Iraqi Envoy to U.S. Hails Iran's Help

1 hour, 4 minutes ago

By BARRY SCHWEID, AP Diplomatic Writer

WASHINGTON - Iraq (news - web sites)'s top envoy here credits Iran with supporting stability in the region and with intercepting 200 fighters from Afghanistan (news - web sites) as they tried to cross the border into Iraq.


In an interview Monday with Associated Press editors and reporters, Rend al-Rahim Francke, who heads Iraq's mission in the United States, vigorously disputed any notion that Iran is supporting terrorism in Iraq.


"I absolutely exclude Iran from this," she said, citing the interception of 200 Afghan fighters as one example and Iran's expected attendance Wednesday in Cairo at a conference of Iraq's neighbors.


President Bush (news - web sites) said Monday that if Iran wants better relations with the United States, it must stop supporting terrorist groups like Hezbollah, prove it isn't seeking nuclear weapons and hand over al-Qaida suspects.

3. If Bush tries Operation Iranian Freedom
The Iraqi army is more likely to engage in Operation Iraqi Freedom, while the U.S. military is otherwise engaged.
