"Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari said Iraq had asked the UN Security Council extend the mandate of U.S. forces to remain on its territory in the absence of the signing of the security agreement with Washington, pointing out that it was better to leave Iraq under the threat of Chapter VII in part, not completely.

The Zebari said in a newspaper interview to "Al Hurra" that he had held on the sidelines of the 63 session of the General Assembly of the United Nations contacts with representatives of the permanent members of the Security Council in this regard for Jess pulse in the event of the need for this, because such a decision is taken unilaterally He pointed to a substantial likelihood of extension for six months or years.

" The Iraq has made several demands to the U.S. side on issues described as the most important topic of sovereign immunity of U.S. forces in Iraq and the withdrawal of these forces rescheduling of the end of the year 2011.

The U.S. ambassador to Baghdad Ryan Crocker accused Tehran of continuing efforts to block the signing of the security agreement to be concluded between Iraq and the United States. The U.S. ambassador warned in a report published by the Los Angeles Times that Iraq's return to health may require more time than some think, It was towards the end of his mission to Baghdad, the greatest fear is that Iraqis are not Americans will be patient to provide adequate resources or the commitment to restore Iraq's full recovery.

However, the White House, according to the paper, is still insisting on no specific date for the withdrawal of armed forces from Iraq and not to subject its soldiers to Iraqi law.

Ambassador Crocker declined to give any details about the course of negotiations, but U.S. officials told the newspaper that the issue of judicial immunity remains the biggest obstacle to the Security Agreement.

Crocker finished his meeting with the Los Angeles Times saying he believed that Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki is determined to finalize the agreement as soon as possible and he would take into account the interests of his country, not what you want Iran or any other regional country.
