US encourages Iraq to talk to Syria

The US has backed Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki's plans to talk to Syria.

Today, the US Iraq Study Group report is expected to recommend that President Bush himself talks to Syria.

Yesterday, the new Secretary of Defence ruled out military action against Syria.

And the day before, one of the world's most anti-Syrian diplomats, US Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, quit. He consistently argued against talking to Syria.
