Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki on Thursday said Iraq would never allow any foreign control of his war-wracked country, during a joint news conference in Jordan with the United States President George W Bush.
"We have repeatedly said, and we reaffirm once more, that we will never allow anyone to control any part of Iraq," Maliki said, when asked about alleged Iranian interference in Iraq.
"There are (foreign) interferences but any talk about (foreign) control is exaggerated," he said.
