Zebari: Iraq agreed to add to the charges of Saddam.
“Baghdad has agreed with Iran to add invading Iran to the charges of Saddam and his aides,” Iraqi foreign ministry announced yesterday.
According to AFP, two sides have agreed that Iraqi former leaders should be tried for war crimes, crimes against humanity and military invasion against Iran and Kuwait.
In addition to the request for adding these charges to Saddam’s case, Iran has asked for the return of hundreds of MKO members, still under the supervision of the US in Iraq. Washington claims that they have been disarmed and are no longer considered a threat for Iran.
Besides, Iraq has asked Tehran to give back fighter planes that has been sent to Iran before the Gulf War.
It’s notable that Saddam and 11 of his Ba’th party leaders are in US custody. They’re charged with attacking Kuwait, suppressing Kurds and Shiites and … but nothing had been mentioned of attacking Iran.
