Sunnis have historical chance to reclaim leadership of Iraq - US Amb.

US Ambassador to Iraq Douglas Siliman asserted that Sunnis have a historical chance to reclaim Iraq's leadership after 15 years of absence since the fall of former president Saddam Hussein's regime.

In a meeting with Sunnis leaders at the Iraqi Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri's house, Siliman said that Shia politicians' leadership in Iraq has failed.

He added that Shias are occupied by internal conflicts, ignoring to provide services required to the Iraqi people, noting that the people have eventually rejected them.

Siliman asserted that Iraq will be restored via democracy not by civil war and civil strife.

He further stated that Shia parties' disputes are not a secret anymore, noting that Shia politicians care more about their personal interests than the interest of Iraq.

Siliman called on Sunnis and Kurds to unite to reclaim their rights via the ballot boxes.
