Sunni Iraqis fear drift towards Iran

As Arab League convenes in Baghdad, some Sunnis say they are wary of Shia leadership’s relations with Tehran.

Since the fall of Saddam Hussein, some Sunni Muslims in Iraq say they feel that their country has drifted away from an Arab identity.

They worry the country’s Shia leadership is growing too close with neighbouring Iran, and prompting distrust from Sunni members of the Arab League, which is meeting in Baghdad this week.

Shias, meanwhile, argue that Iraq has many regional allies and that it is wrong to focus on relations with Iran.
