Iraqi President Jalal Talabani has rejected recommendations by the U.S. bi-partisan Iraq Study Group to change U.S. policy in the region.
Mr. Talabani, an Iraqi Kurd, told a news conference today the report was unfair and unjust. He said the report contains what he called "dangerous articles that undermine the sovereignty of Iraq and its constitution."
The Iraqi president had previously praised sections calling for dialog with neighboring countries, such as Iran and Syria.
On Sunday, he objected to including representatives of the former Iraqi government in any attempts at reconciliation. Sunni Arab politicians had welcomed the recommendation.
The Iraq Study Group, led by former U.S. Secretary of State James Baker - Republican - and Democrat Lee Hamilton, urged embedding thousands more U.S. advisers in Iraq's security forces.
