MP Ziad Janabi, head of the parliamentary bloc for the Civil Society for Reform, has urged Brett McGurk, the US special presidential envoy to the US-led Coalition, to apologize to the people of Iraq for the policies his country is implementing in the country.

Janabi said in a statement that McGurk has made Iraq the battleground for the US and Russia tensions, and it has led the country into ruins.

He also accused the US envoy of influencing the political process in Iraq by interfering in the government formation negotiations earlier in October prior to the appointment of Adil Abdul-Mahdi as the new Iraqi premier.

Janabi further urged Washington and Moscow to realize that the sovereignty of Iraq should remain above their goals in the region.
