Iraq’s major political parties’ leaders Monday vowed to work relentlessly to address political challenges to ultimately achieve national consensus that would honor aspirations of the Iraqi people.
Leaders of the Iraqiya List, Kurdistan coalition and the state of law alliance met at President Jalal Talabani’s office and decided to address the political conflict in line with the constitution.
Talabani, prime minister Nouri Al-Maliki and parliament speaker Osama Al-Nujaifi attended the meeting, the president’s office said in a statement.
The participants pledged to stay united against terrorists and armed groups.
They also agreed that the constitution be the basis for resolving conflicts, added the statement.
They asserted importance of keeping the judiciary distant from political wranglings.
