FILE - In this Monday, April 11, 2011 file photo, Iraqi Foreign Affairs Minister Hoshyar Zebari walks on the grounds of the conference palace dedicated to the coming Arab League summit in Baghdad, Iraq. A summit of Arab leaders, held here for the first time in a generation, is a prime opportunity for Iraq to reassert itself as a political player in the Arab world after years of war, isolation and American occupation. It also puts Iraq's Shiite leadership under pressure to pick a side in the bitter sectarian politics dividing the region. Iraq's suspicious Arab brethren will likely use the crisis in Syria as a litmus test whether Baghdad is with them or with their top rival, Shiite-led Iran. (AP Photo/Karim Kadim, File) less
