Diplomats arrive in Egypt to discuss Iraq’s future

Diplomats arrive in Egypt to discuss Iraq’s future

High-ranking politicians from 60 countries are landing in Egypt on the eve of a two-day conference on the future of Iraq. The conference is expected to bring together officials from Iraq's neighbours and industrial powers, including Russia.

It is anticipated they will endorse a five-year plan that demands reforms in Iraq in exchange for foreign aid.

A meeting between U.S. Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, and Iran's Foreign Minister, Manouchehr Mottaki, is likely to be the highlight of the debates in Sharm el-Sheikh.

Washington repeatedly blamed Iran of supporting Shi'ite militants in Iraq to cause violence and terror.
