Agency :
Global leaders have pressed for the next Iraqi government to be more inclusive, seeking to draw Sunni support away from militants who this month swept over much of the country’s north.
But in his weekly address to the nation today, Nouri al-Maliki gave only a vague call for “all political forces to reconcile” with the principles of Iraq’s constitutional democracy.
He rejected forming a “national salvation” government, which he said would go against the results of parliament elections.
al-Maliki’s coalition won the most seats in the April 30 vote – 92 of the 328-seat chamber.
Meanwhile, n early half of the roughly 300 US military advisers and special operations forces expected to go to Iraq are now in Baghdad.
