A beleaguered Iraqi Prime Minister arrived in Iran today. Nourri Al-Maliki’s government is crumbling even though he is refusing to accept ministerial resignations. Maliki is also underfire from the United States for not doing enough to reconcile his nation. There are three way talks going on between Iraq, Iran and the United States, but Baghdad often complains it has to play referee, urging both not to fight out their differences in Iraq. The Iraqi Prime Minister is in Tehran to continue his push for stronger bilateral ties on crucial security matters, as well as economic and trade issues. During his three day stay he will meet with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
