"It's not worthy to respond to the request of Haares al-Zaarri to cut the support for Maliki's government because it is coming from an individual who's responsible for violence and hatred among Iraqis."
David Satterfield, Senior Advisor to the Secretary of State and Coordinator for Iraq, said: "Agreement in Iraq is something crucial and all groups should withdraw from their positions, which is really difficult."
In an interview with Al-Hurra TV, he added: "It's not worthy to respond to the request of Haares al-Zaarri to cut the support for Maliki's government because it is coming from an individual who's responsible for violence and hatred among Iraqis."
Rejecting Zaarri's prediction on the possibility of agreement between the US and his delegation, Satterfield said: "If he was really looking for reconciliation, it would be necessary for him and his colleagues to cooperate with other Iraqis in order to achieve national reconciliation."
"Iraqi PM Nuri al-Maliki has been elected in a democratic process and the US recognizes him as the prime minister of Iraq."
Satterfield also called on Sunni leaders to support national dialogue and advance it.
