Amman, July 19 (IANS) Iraq Friday recalled its ambassador to Jordan for consultations, following a meeting of Sunni leaders in the country.

Iraq decided to call its ambassador in Amman Jawad Abbas back for consultations, Xinhua quoted the country’s foreign ministry as saying in a statement without giving more details.

Analysts say this move could be seen as a sign of protest after Iraqi Sunni leaders held a meeting in Jordan and described the current insurgency in Iraq as a “

opular revolt”.

Iraqi Sunni leaders in exile Wednesday downplayed a Sunni Islamist uprising led by Islamic State militants, portraying the violence as a fightback against the incumbent Shiite-led government.
