Time not on Iraq's side, US warns amid political chaos

Iraqi Speaker of Parliament Osama al-Nujaifi (R) meets with US Secretary of State John Kerry in Baghdad June 23, 2014The United States again pressed Iraqi leaders Tuesday to form a new government as soon as possible, warning as the new parliament broke up in chaos that “time is not on Iraq’s side.” “It was important that Iraq’s new parliament convened today, as they pledged to do,” State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf said. US Secretary of State John Kerry visited Iraq last week to try to push the fractious Sunni, Shiite and Kurdish sides to accelerate steps to filling the three key government posts — speaker, president and prime minister. The aim is to unify the government and help it confront the threat of Islamic militants who have captured a swathe of northern territory, and declared Iraq and Syria a new Islamic state.
