ABSTRACT
The article reports on the move of the U.S. government to embrace regional democracy as recommended by the Iraq Study Group in an effort to stop Iranian and Syrian assistance to the armed factions fighting in Iraq. It mentions the plan of the U.S. to open a similar trilateral dialogue with Syria but the details are still being worked out. Ryan Crocker, the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, believes that it should be easier to achieve an agreement with Syria than with Iran.
