|U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry pressed Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki on Sunday to stop Iranian flights over Iraq from carrying arms to Syria during a visit to the Iraqi capital. Kerry said he had "a very spirited discussion" with Maliki about the issue and he made clear U.S. unhappiness about the suspected arms transfers on Iranian flights through Iraqi airspace. "Anything that supports President Assad is problematic," Kerry told reporters. "I made it very clear to the prime minister that the overflights from Iran ... are in fact helping to sustain President Assad and his regime."|
