US Tells Iran To Stop Helping Iraqi Terrorists

U.S. tells Iran to stop backing Iraq militias

By Ross Colvin

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Washington’s top official in Iraq said he told an Iranian delegation that Tehran should stop supporting militias in Iraq but described rare talks between the two foes on Monday as positive.

United States Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker said the talks, the first high-profile discussions between the two countries in almost three decades, ended without setting a date for another meeting.

“The talks proceeded positively. What we need to see is Iranian action on the ground,” Crocker told reporters.

There was no immediate comment from the Iranian team after the talks.

“I laid out before the Iranians a number of our direct, specific concerns about their behavior in Iraq, their support for militias that are fighting both the Iraqi security forces and coalition forces,” Crocker said.

“The fact (is) that a lot of the explosives and ammunitions that are used by these groups are coming in from Iran … Such activities … need to cease and … we would be looking for results,” he added.

Crocker said the Iranian delegation, led by Iraq Ambassador Hassan Kazemi-Qomi, did not respond directly to the charges other than to express their support for the Iraqi government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki

What a laugh.

We might as well bid the tide not to flow.
