From the "International Support for Iraq" section of the latest Iraq Weekly Status Report put out by the State Dept:
In a statement addressing leaders at a two-day Arab League summit that opened March 28 in Riyadh, Iraqi Parliament Speaker Mahmud al-Mashhadani appealed to Arab leaders to “shoulder their legitimate, ethical and national responsibilities toward Iraq and to never abandon its people.”
Oddly enough, no mention was made of this quote from Saudi King Abdullah from the same Arab League summit:
In the beloved Iraq, the bloodshed is continuing under an illegal foreign occupation and detestable sectarianism.
