U.S. Warns Iran Against Iraq Interference

WASHINGTON - The Bush administration cautioned Iran on Wednesday against trying to influence the outcome of Iraq (news - web sites)'s election, reacting to fears that Tehran is trying to produce a Shiite-dominated Islamic government in Baghdad.

Bush talked about Iran in meetings Monday with Jordan's King Abdullah II and Ghazi al-Yawer, the interim Iraqi president, both Sunni Muslims.

Iran and Syria joined other nations at an international conference on Iraq last month at the Egyptian resort of Sharm El-Sheikh in pledging to contribute to Iraq's stability and to prevent terrorists from coming into Iraq, White House press secretary Scott McClellan said. The communique also called on all parties to tighten border controls.


"We expect them to abide by that commitment," McClellan said.


"Iraq has talked to Iran about these issues," the spokesman said. "We've made our views very clear to Iran, as well as others, and we continue to call on Iran to act in a responsible way and be helpful as the Iraqi people move forward on building a brighter future."


Abdullah and al-Yawer accuse Shiite Muslim-dominated Iran of trying to influence the Jan. 30 elections in Iraq, where the country's majority Shiites are expected to perform strongly.


Abdullah told The Washington Post in an interview published Wednesday that more than 1 million Iranians have entered Iraq, many to vote, and said they were being encouraged by the Iranian government.


Iran has said it has no interest in fomenting instability in Iraq and it tries to block any infiltration into Iraq by insurgents while noting that the borders are hard to police.
