[JURIST] Sunni Arabs, Shiites and Kurds began a new round of talks in Iraq Wednesday, seeking to agree on several disputed areas of the draft Iraqi constitution [JURIST report; JURIST news archive]. Many, including US ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad [official profile], nonetheless believe it's unlikely an agreement will be made before the new Thursday deadline. On Tuesday, Sunnis repeated their complaint that by submitting a draft constitution, Shiites and Kurds violated a promise to that no document would be considered unless all groups agreed to it. They said, "If the wording is not re-examined in a way that serves the interests of the country and ensures equality for everybody, then this draft is considered as rejected, as a whole and in details." Iraqi President Jalal Talabani [Wikipedia profile], called for cooperation with the Sunnis [AP report] and said stability cannot be reached without consensus. AP has more.
