Iraq President Criticizes Arab Stance on Terrorism
Iraq's President Jalal Talabani accuses some Arab countries of privately condoning and abetting terrorists in Iraq while publicly condemning terrorism. In an interview published today in two Jordanian newspapers in conjunction with his visit to Jordan, Talabani said some countries are offering material, training and media support for terrorism in Iraq.
Talabani declined to name the countries, but he excluded Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Iran from his list of offenders.
Talabani also said the U.S.-led coalition would not be leaving anytime soon, saying Iraq needs it for preventing foreign intervention.
In a separate interview with Reuters news agency, the Iraqi president said he believed the terror network of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi appears "isolated and hated" by Iraqis.
