According to al-Hayat, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Mua’llem said that Syria is prepared to help American forces have a “dignified exit” (kharouj musharraf) from Iraq, as long as America would institute a time table for building the Iraqi forces. Mu’allem has also said that the Iraqi army and government should be built on a national — and not sectarian — basis.

Al-Jazeera reports that the Iraqi government has called for Turkish troops to leave Iraq, with officials describing the Turkish invasion of northern Iraq as a violation of the country’s sovereignty. Turkey has stated it intends to send an official delegation to Baghdad.
