Arab nations are urging rival Iraqi politicians to end their bickering and form a new government nearly three months after the country's inconclusive election.
The plea comes amid increasing fears that an extended political vacuum could undermine Iraq's stability.
Results of the March election have been in dispute, heightening tensions and setting off political wrangling at a time when U.S. troops are preparing to go home.
The Arab League in a statement on Thursday also warned against any Arab, regional or foreign meddling over the formation of the next Iraqi government.
The League says Iraqi leaders should come up with "practical proposals" on the government. The statement was carried by Egypt's state MENA news agency.
