Ahmadinejad to Host Summit with Syria and Iraq

Hosted by

The Associated Press reports today that Iran has invited Iraq and Syria to a weekend summit in Tehran to address the region's growing security concerns over runaway violence in Iraq. The move is seen as an effort to undercut expected moves from Washington that would have included Syria and Iran in regional initiatives to curb the violence in Iraq.
